A LAW firm is celebrating after winning a top Government contract covering the East of England.

Howes Percival fought off stiff competition from more than 50 other firms to win a three-year contract handling the Department of Trade and Industry's insolvency work.

The contract extends a relationship between Howes Percival and the DTI stretching back to 1994.

The work involves advising on and carrying out proceedings against former directors of failed companies under the Company Directors Disqualification Act 1986, and the contract covers Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire as well as half the cases issued in the High Court in London.

The firm will be part of a panel of just five companies who advise on all such cases on behalf of the DTI across England and Wales.

Andrew Barnes, managing partner of Howes Percival's East Anglia region, said they were “absolutely delighted” to win the contract.
