Howes Percival has added specialist corporate law solicitor Josie Rogers to its Corporate, Commercial, and Banking team in Cambridge.
Josie’s recruitment follows the appointment of James Stephen in January, as head of its Corporate Law team, at the city office.
Josie works with business owners, SMEs and larger corporations, advising on a range of corporate transactions including share and asset sales and purchases, management buyouts, and shareholder agreements. She has joined as an Associate.
Howes Percival’s Corporate, Commercial, and Banking team enjoyed its busiest year to-date in 2022, completing over 150 transactions.
In the last 12 months, the East of England Corporate team has advised on a series of deals, including farm machinery dealer Ben Burgess on the acquisition of fellow John Deere dealership the Doubleday Group, Master’s Logistical Services Limited of Ely on the sale to Knowles (Transport) Limited and Touchdown PR Limited on the sale of the company to US headquartered Ruder Finn, one of the world’s largest independent global communications agencies.
James Stephen, Partner and head of the Corporate Law team in Cambridge, said, “We are delighted to welcome Josie to the Corporate team in Cambridge. Her arrival represents the latest step in the firm’s investment in the Corporate, Commercial and Banking team, both firm-wide and in Cambridge. We look forward to helping Josie settle in quickly and to her enjoying her career with the firm.”
“The firm has had a clear plan to invest in its Corporate, Commercial, and Banking team nationally in recent years, which has generated a significant uplift in capacity, experience and results across all the offices. Following a record-breaking number of deals last year, we are expecting to be busy again this year despite the current uncertain economic climate. The Cambridge office is going from strength to strength across all our specialisms and we continue to grow our market share in the city.”
Howes Percival was recently confirmed as one of the ‘Best Companies to Work For’, for the third year running. The 2022 list saw the firm rise 13 places to 59th position in the UK’s 100 Best Large Companies to Work For category and 8th in the Top 10 Best Large Law Firms to Work For list. The firm achieved a 2-star Best Companies accreditation, which is given to organisations with an ‘outstanding’ commitment to workplace engagement.
