Higgs & Sons bucks trend with recruitment drive

A leading West Midlands law firm has overcome difficult business conditions to add nine new members of staff in recent months.

Higgs & Sons, based in Brierley Hill, continues to thrive and expand its team.

The firm’s property team has been boosted by three new faces: Jodie Johnson (Paralegal), Reanne Upton (Solicitor) and Toni Quinney (Legal Assistant).

The Legal Services department has also been expanded, with Michelle Jamieson appointed as head of the team, while Alex Sankey and Aisha Islam are the new office assistants.

There are two other Paralegal appointments in Meena Akhtar (Clinical Negligence) and Hayfa Hazem (Business Services), while Megan Roberts has joined the firm as Business Development Manager having previously worked within the health and employment services sector.

Meanwhile, two trainees, Bethany Hemmings and Laura Horton, are staying with the firm having recently qualified.

Nick Taylor, Managing Partner of Higgs & Sons, said: “We are delighted to have increased our team by bringing these nine talented and ambitious recruits into the firm.

“Recent months have been challenging for all sorts of businesses in numerous different ways. We are not immune to that, but we have still seen areas of growth and our teams have remained very busy as we seek to help our clients in any way we can.

“It’s a huge disappointment that these nine new recruits cannot sample life in the Higgs & Sons office at present, but we are welcoming them into their roles as they work from home and look forward to the day when we can return to our headquarters.”

Sedgley local Reanne has joined Higgs & Sons after three-and-a-half years as Assistant Solicitor with The Wilkes Partnership.

“It was time for a change and I’m delighted to be at Higgs & Sons, which is such a well-respected and renowned law firm,” said the 30-year-old.

“Property litigation has been extremely busy with everything that has been going on. Everyone has been lovely and I’m really settling in, despite not being able to work in the office.”

Higgs & Sons has a further six trainees in the current cohort.
