We live our values and look to work with people who share them. We are working hard to make our firm a place where people and clients want to come and stay, where everyone feels included, and where 'unique' is a word that is overused in relation to our culture.

Our expertise

How we have evolved

We're proud of how far we've come. In the last few years alone, Howard Kennedy has undergone two mergers, culminating in an office move to 1 London Bridge. And with over 80 years in London's West End, our move to the City was pivotal. This marked a change for our people and, more importantly, a change for our clients. Since then, we’ve expanded the services that we provide clients, improved our technology, and relocated closer to our clients.
