Higgs Corporate team nominated for prestigious award

Higgs LLP’s Corporate team has been shortlisted for an award which honours the region’s best advisers for corporate mergers, sales and acquisitions.

The team is in the running for the Corporate Law Firm of the Year accolade at Insider's Midlands Dealmakers Awards. There were more 500 nominations put forward for the awards across 15 categories and the winners will be announced at the ceremony at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole on December 9.

The shortlisting caps a fantastic week for the Higgs’ Corporate team, which has also been lauded in the respected Legal 500 listings. The team received a top tier ranking and a number of the individual lawyers within the team were singled out as leaders in their field.

Richard Griffiths, Head of Corporate at Higgs LLP, said: “We are proud and honoured to be shortlisted in the Insider’s Midlands Dealmakers Awards, which follows on perfectly from the Legal 500 report.

“We have been incredibly busy this year and our continued success is testament to the hard work of all of the team. We have been involved in a significant number of notable transactions and the pipeline is as strong as I can remember.

“However, whilst the award shortlisting and Tier 1 ranking is fantastic recognition for the team, it was even more rewarding to read the feedback which had been provided directly by our clients to the Legal 500 researchers.”

Some of the feedback included:

‘Higgs are a very commercially orientated practice that differs from any other legal firm I have used over the last 20 years. The have an excellent understanding of the needs of businesses undertaking private equity and are far removed from the stereotypical solicitors firm. They are modern, innovative, tech savvy and extremely fast to respond. Everything is done digitally and inline with the 21st century.’

‘The team are approachable, switched on, deliver on time and are good value for money.’

‘Friendly, approachable team. Excellent value for money; you get just as good a service as you get from city firms at a much lower fee.’

‘Richard Griffiths and Jamie Partington are exceptional representatives of Higgs. They are fantastically knowledgeable of their subject matter, translate technical legalities into a currency that you can understand, excellent at drafting and have an attention to detail that is second to none. They represented our interests in a commercial fashion rather than a typical legal exchange. Excellent communicators, fast and effective – they understood our objectives and went about achieving it.’
