New Commercial Property Partner for Howes Percival’s Milton Keynes office

Leading law firm Howes Percival has boosted its commercial property team with the appointment of Marcus Carter, as partner.  A specialist in commercial property matters, Marcus, joins the firm’s Milton Keynes office from EMW Law where he headed-up the ‘Occupiers and Investment’ team.

Marcus acts for corporate occupiers of commercial property and deals with investment acquisitions and disposals.  He has significant experience in working with clients on expanding their portfolios or managing their existing portfolio.  He works with clients as part of their team to achieve their goals. Marcus works with household names and local businesses either starting out or moving premises. 

Tessa Haskey, partner and head of Howes Percival’s commercial property teamcommented, “I am delighted to welcome Marcus to Howes Percival.   We pride ourselves on recruiting experienced, hands-on experts who are commercially minded and can work with clients to find practical solutions to some often very tricky issues.  This approach has been key in sustaining and growing our client base.  Marcus fits this mould and is very well-known and respected in the Milton Keynes area.”

“The commercial property sector is at the heart of our business strategy.  Over the last few years, we’ve expanded our offering, recruiting senior level experts to ensure we have the specialisms and depth of expertise to service our clients’ requirements and, to attract high-quality work.  Despite the massive upheaval caused by the pandemic, we are currently seeing a property boom in certain sectors, especial for industrial property.  Retail and office units are still moving and the market for dark stores – warehouses which serve the retail sector – is also buoyant.”

Marcus Carter commented, “The Milton Keynes commercial property market is performing well.  The area is an ideal location for businesses looking to move from the expensive London market to smaller regional hub-based office structures.  There is also a big focus on the industrial shed market – the Oxford, Cambridge, Milton Keynes Arc and associated transport links makes Milton Keynes an ideal place for these structures.”

Howes Percival’s commercial property team has a strong reputation as one of the largest and most skilled teams of legal property specialists across the Central and Eastern regions.  The award-winning team acts for many household names, including some of the country’s largest housebuilders, commercial developers, investors, lenders, business owners, charities, landowners, construction firms and public sector organisations.
