New Legal Director reveals Restructuring & Insolvency growth plans

An exciting new hire for Higgs LLP, as expert Lauren Hartigan-Pritchard reveals the growth plans for Restructuring & Insolvency.

Lauren joined Higgs in December as a Legal Director within the Business Services team, taking over from retiree David Ellis. With over 10 years’ experience dedicated to restructuring and insolvency she is well placed to grow and expand the department.

Immediate growth plans have prompted the arrival of trainee solicitor, Johnny Jones, while the firm continues to recruit for more experienced solicitors to join the growing team.

Lauren said: “I am delighted to have joined the Higgs team. I’ve been offered an exciting opportunity to grow the firm’s Restructuring & Insolvency Department. I’ve had experience of doing this role in previous firms but I can see huge potential in doing this for Higgs.

“Higgs have always had an innovative approach and its strong client relationships will provide me with an excellent platform on which to succeed in this role.”

Lauren trained and qualified in Bristol but, having grown up in the Midlands, she returned to her roots to practice here in 2013. Lauren has previously worked for Meade King Solicitors LLP, Thursfields Solicitors and more recently Manolete Partners Plc.

Working in this specialist field has always been Lauren’s passion and she enjoys the variety of work that restructuring and insolvency offers.

“Restructuring and insolvency allows you to work with businesses from a variety of sectors; one day you could be dealing with the administration of a large manufacturing company, the next helping to restructure a high street retailer or taking steps to protect a director from incurring personal liabilities.

“The work is technical and the clients are understandably demanding, but any job without its challenges isn’t worth doing and I always look forward to taking on the challenge!”

Lauren can help with all aspects of restructuring and insolvency, including corporate restructuring, director protection services, bringing and defending insolvency claims, personal insolvency, property insolvency, purchase of assets from insolvent businesses and retention of title.
