Keith Lassman, Partner and Head of Capital Markets at Howard Kennedy, says: “For the past 17 years we have led the market advising VCTs.  This year we have advised on 27 of the 33 VCTs to come to market, representing over 80 per cent of the market.  Howard Kennedy is the go to law firm and sponsor for VCTs.”

The firm has a dedicated team of partners and staff advising VCTs through its wholly owned FCA authorised subsidiary, Howard Kennedy Corporate Services LLP, which has been active in the market place since 1997, listing well over 150 companies over that period.
