Howes Percival has appointed Paula Dumbill as a partner and head of its commercial team within its Corporate, Commercial, and Banking (CCB) practice.

Dumbill will be based at the firm’s Leicester office and joins from Browne Jacobson where she was head of the commercial team in the East Midlands and lead health tech partner.

Andy Harris, partner and head of Howes Percival’s CCB team said: “It’s been a long-held objective to create a dedicated “Commercial” team alongside our specialist Corporate and Banking teams, with the “tech” focus clients need. Paula is exactly the right fit for us.

“Our ambition is to be the ‘go-to’ firm for corporate, commercial, and banking advice in the Central and Eastern regions, by utilising the vast and varied experience our partners and senior lawyers have to provide no-nonsense, business-focussed advice. To this end, we’ve invested heavily in the team over the past couple of years, Paula’s appointment continues this approach, and I am delighted she is with us to continue our growth journey.

Dumbill said: “I’m very proud to be joining Howes Percival. The firm has a fantastic reputation for the quality of its work, and I am excited to be involved in helping to develop its commercial practice.”
