Howard joined Leathes Prior in April 2021 from Gotelee Solicitors, where he’d worked since 2000 and had been a Partner for 14 years. Bringing with him a wealth of experience, he is a Higher Courts Advocate, renowned for his prowess in the field of regulatory, criminal and road traffic defence, acting for clients in both the Magistrates and Crown Court, and at Public Inquiry.
Howard has a particular expertise in the logistics sector, assisting businesses across the international supply chain, including traders, freight forwarders, road transport operators and fulfilment houses. He is one of only two lawyers in East Anglia to be inducted in to the Legal 500 Hall of Fame for transport and shipping - an accolade reserved for those lawyers said by the Legal 500 to have been an elite leading lawyer in their rankings for at least eight of the last ten years.
Howard studied at University College London before working in Sardinia for three years. He speaks Italian and has a working knowledge of French.
Outside of work, Howard enjoys spending time with his family. He is a lifelong Norwich City supporter and Welsh rugby fan.
