Law firm recruits Leicester financial litigation partner
Law firm Howes Percival has appointed Leicester financial litigation partner Alistair Haggerty to its dispute resolution team.
Haggerty specialises in financial litigation with an emphasis on secured asset recovery, including property, plant and machinery and domestic and commercial vehicles.
He also has experience in litigating claims in the County Courts, High Courts and Court of Appeal as well as appearing as a solicitor-advocate in County and High Courts across the country.
In addition to acting for commercial and tertiary lenders such as peer-to-peer funders, brokers and asset finance companies, Haggerty regularly acts for a variety of commercial clients including partnerships, LLPs, owner-managed SMEs, limited companies, public companies and merchant banks.
Howes Percival’s partner Katie Summers, said: “We are absolutely delighted to bring Alistair to Howes Percival. He has a wealth of experience in secured asset recovery, including property, plant machinery and vehicles. He also has significant expertise in the area of enforcement, in particular receiverships. This is a specialism we are looking to develop and provide clients with a holistic approach to their secured assets and the recovery of the same as and when required.
“We are looking to work with commercial lenders, funding houses and brokers who may know of companies who would benefit from the recovery expertise Alistair is able to provide. Conditions in the property market, particularly, have been difficult of late and those who have lent money in return for security over property, need to act quickly in these scenarios. Having people who know this market and how best to realise an asset, is key to ensuring a safe return for any sums loaned.”
