Legal firm Howes Percival has appointed Paul Hunt partner and Sarah Hollis associate in its East Midlands planning team.
They both join from Shakespeare Martineau and will be based in the firm’s Leicester office.
Hunt has over 30 years of experience in the public and private sectors, and specialises in large residential and mixed-use schemes.
Hollis has acted for registered providers advising on social housing issues and has experience of contentious planning, including judicial review and statutory challenges.
Chris May, planning partner and head of Howes Percival's Leicester planning team, said: “The East Midlands development market is currently very buoyant and we're seeing a significant increase in new instructions.
“In addition to continuing to serve clients in the East Midlands, Paul and Sarah's appointments will enable us to expand our horizons and increase our presence in the South Midlands."
