We have further strengthened our commercial team of legal experts with the appointment of commercial litigation specialist Owen Lloyd.
Who is Owen Lloyd and What Will He Do at Howells Solicitors?
A graduate from Swansea University and a fluent Welsh speaker, Owen is a Chartered Legal Executive who has previously worked for well-known regional law firms, as well as a London law practice.
Owen will be working with Jacky Jones, Head of Commercial Litigation at Howells, utilising his extensive knowledge and experience to assist clients with all legal matters relating to contract disputes, director/shareholder disputes, insolvency matters (acting individuals, companies, and insolvency practitioners), intellectual property matters, defamation, the sale of businesses and asset sales.
Commenting on the appointment Jacky said:
“Owen brings an exciting new dimension to our litigation team. He will be able to assist and guide our clients through the many challenges they might face in litigation. Plus, our clients will want to know they have a safe pair of hands to guide them through the process, which Owen can certainly do.”
As well as specialising in commercial litigation, Owen also represents sports and media professionals by providing expert advice and guidance for contracts and disputes. His clients in this area of law include international and regional rugby players and footballers, as well as recording artists signed to major and independent labels.
Speaking about why he decided to join Howells, Owen said:
“Howells is one of the top law firms in the region and the relatively new commercial litigation team has already gained a good reputation for their approachable style and legal excellence.
“Jacky and the team have developed a loyal client base and specialisms in areas complementary to my own. Given their reputation, and the exciting personal and business opportunities within the firm, it was an easy decision to come onboard.”
Commenting on Owen’s appointment and the expansion of the commercial litigation department, Mark Hobbs, Managing Director of Howells said:
“Owen’s appointment comes at a critical time for the department as their case load continues to increase. We have made a series of key appointments where we have specifically set out to recruit suitably qualified and experienced legal professionals. Owen will open new doors for Howells and enable us to start providing a bilingual law service.”
