Howes Percival appoints new director to strengthen Private Client Team

Regional law firm Howes Percival has strengthened its East Midlands Private Client Team with the appointment of wills, probate, tax and trust specialist, Alexandra Hornsby as a director.  Alexandra will be based in the firm’s Leicester office.

Alexandra has over 14 years’ experience advising wealthy individuals and business owners on estate planning and succession matters, including complex inheritance tax and capital gains tax issues. She’s also experienced in advising trustees, drafting and administering trusts, and dealing with estate administration.

Alexandra is member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) – the professional association for those advising families across generations.  STEP promotes best practice, professional integrity and education among its members.  To gain full membership of STEP, practitioners must successfully complete a rigorous set of examinations.

Alexandra previously worked at Meridian Private Client LLP.

Catherine Scott, Head of Private Client Services at Howes Percival said, “I’m delighted to welcome Alexandra to the firm, she brings a wealth of experience in dealing with complex private client matters for high net-worth individuals.

“Over the last three years we’ve strengthened our Private Client Team in the East Midlands, taking on three new private client lawyers.  We’re looking at further expansion to deal with increased new instructions from the Leicester marketplace from both existing and new clients.  Alexandra is a great addition to the team and will really add to our expertise across the region.  Her appointment gives us a dedicated and permanent Private Client presence in our Leicester office and increases the depth of our tax advisory capabilities in that office, ensuring that we have the right resources in place to advise clients.”
