Simon strengthens personal injury team

17 January 2023

Leading regional law firm Higgs LLP has strengthened its Major Trauma Team with the appointment of a vastly experienced Partner.

Simon Stanfield has joined Higgs after 23 years as Partner across two well-respected firms.

He is also the former chair of the Motor Accident Solicitors Society (MASS) and the current vice chair of the organisation.

Simon, from Sutton Coldfield, said the quality of work had led him to join Higgs. “I am delighted to have joined Higgs as Partner,” said Simon. “I have known Andy Shaw, Head of Personal Injury, for many years and I look forward to working with him and the exceptional team.

“The quality of the work and the location attracted me to Higgs. They deal with significant and complex personal injury cases and I look forward to getting stuck in.

“Central to Higgs’ ethos is helping innocent victims in terms of not just damages but also rehabilitation. That’s what I’m all about: being there for people at their time of need.”

Simon, who has two daughters, said he was aware of Higgs’ culture and commitment to the wellbeing of its people before he joined the firm.

“I found out about the culture of the firm during the recruitment process,” he said. “I was really impressed with the togetherness, pride and collegiate spirit. It’s almost like a family firm with a commercial edge.

“Everyone has been extremely welcoming and I look forward to getting to know more people in time.”

Higgs’ specialist major trauma lawyers are vastly experienced in dealing with cases involving brain injury, spinal injury, amputations, serious orthopaedic injury, disease and occupational illness, chronic pain and severe psychological injuries.

Andy Shaw said: “We’re pleased to welcome Simon to the team. He brings with him a wealth of experience and a proven track record of achieving impressive results for victims of serious injury. He will add to the impressive strength and depth we already have at the firm.”
