Howes Percival has made up two partners in its annual promotions round, with both based in the firm’s East Midlands employment practice.
Becky Hodgkins and Alex Payton joined the firm as associate solicitors in 2008.
Payton joined from Leicester-based Rich & Carr, while Hodgkins arrived from Eversheds’ Nottingham office.
They work with clients in the public and private sectors and high net worth individuals, focusing on areas such as unfair dismissal, discrimination, whistle blowing and equal pay.
Paula Bailey, head of the 12-strong Leicester-based employment team, said: “Both Becky and Alex are high calibre lawyers. They both came with excellent reputations, which they have only enhanced during their time at Howes Percival.”
