Higgs LLP adds duo to family team

Leading law firm Higgs LLP has strengthened its family team with two new recruits.

The well-respected West Midlands firm has appointed highly-experienced Karen Gray and recently-qualified Chelsea Mountain.

Karen started at Higgs in mid-July and is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute for Legal Executives. She has over 20 years’ experience of working in the family law field.

Karen has worked in a local firm the Midlands for 12 years before being given the opportunity to join the Higgs team.

“I have been working at law firms for 30 years and Higgs has always been on my radar,” said Karen, who lives in Hagley in Worcestershire.

“Higgs is renowned for its high level of service and for investing in its people. It’s early days for me at the firm, but I have already witnessed this.

“My particular expertise is dealing with matters concerning children and domestic abuse. I’ve worked in numerous complex cases and have strong links with the region’s women’s refuges. These are areas I want to continue to explore during my time with Higgs.

“People are coming to you at a really traumatic time in their lives and it’s really rewarding to help them get their lives back on track.”

Chelsea­ was previously a legal assistant at a Midlands firm, where she also trained before switching to Higgs in April.

The wild camping fan said: “My experience at Higgs has exceeded expectations so far. Everyone has been extremely helpful.

“I advise clients following relationship breakdowns, advising on divorce, financial remedies and child arrangements and take pride in the service and advice that I provide to my clients in order to achieve outcomes that are right for them and their families.

“I’m looking to progressing my career with Higgs.”

Philip Barnsley, head of the family team, said: “It’s fantastic to welcome another two excellent lawyers to the team, both of which are very passionate about their work and their areas of expertise.

“I look forward to working with them in the months and years to come as we continue to grow the family team within Higgs LLP.”

Higgs LLP has a wealth of experience successfully resolving matters for families throughout the region as well as nationally and internationally.
