Patrick Howarth

Partner & Head of Litigation

Specialising in: Dispute Resolution Personal Injury Insolvency and Debt Recovery Business Disputes

I am a partner and head of the Litigation Department. 

I studied philosophy at Cardiff University, and then completed the Graduate Diploma in Law at the University of South Wales, before returning to Cardiff University to complete the Legal Practice Course. I qualified as a solicitor in September 2016 and joined RLO in February 2017, and was given conduct of the Litigation Department in February 2021.  

I have experience dealing with a wide range of civil and commercial disputes acting for both private individuals and businesses including personal injury claims, commercial contract disputes, property litigation (with a particular interest in landlord and tenant matters), and contested probate. I have a very good track record in respect of the outcomes that I have achieved for my clients, and I always put my clients’ commercial interests first. 

I am a keen musician and have played the drums, and the guitar (which I have also taught), since my teens. I follow football and support Manchester United. I live in Cardiff, with my wife and our baby daughter.

Client Lt1

“Thank you for your swift response about the Section 8, unfortunately,my husband did not agree to go on that route and, in the end, we didn't need to. Thank you too for your consultation, it was much appreciated. Hopefully, I won't need your services again, but nice to know there is a personable and helpful solicitor out there.”
