New era begins for Higgs LLP

Today marks the start of a new era for leading Midlands law firm Higgs LLP.

After converting to Higgs LLP in July, we are now beginning a fresh approach to work in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Today represents our official ‘return to the office’ and we are excited to welcome both existing and new colleagues to our Brierley Hill HQ.

There will be a number of new starters joining the Higgs LLP team. Becky Pickering joins as a Property Associate while Legal Secretary Sharon MacDonald also arrives.

In addition, our seven new trainees commence their training contracts, emphasising our commitment to finding, developing and providing opportunity to the next generation of lawyers.

Our trainees include: Chloe Shilton (Property), Jess Bull (Property), Simrit Chahal (Personal Injury/Clinical Negligence), Raj Chohan (Property), Sarah-Jane Goodswen (Business Services), Sophie Walmsley (Private Client) and Eleanor Martin (Private Client).

Our colleagues will benefit from a new Best FIT (“Flexible, Inclusive, Together”) approach, allowing individuals and teams to establish a range of working patterns which retain the best elements of remote and office-based working.

In the vast majority of roles, our people will spend at least 40 per cent of their week collaborating in the office, with the opportunity to work remotely for the remainder.

Nick Taylor, Managing Partner at Higgs LLP, said: “This is a new chapter for the firm, both in terms of embracing our hybrid working strategy and also reconnecting with clients, colleagues and friends in the office.

“It’s also an exciting time welcoming new recruits, as well as a new cohort of excellent trainees which demonstrates our ongoing commitment to growing the firm.

“We feel our new Best FIT approach represents the right blend of remote and office working, while ensuring we continue to provide the outstanding service and advice Higgs LLP has been renowned for.”

As part of the return to work programme, each colleague will receive a special welcome pack, while the entire firm and their families were invited to an exclusive evening of celebration at the Black Country Living Museum last week.
