"I am a legal assistant in the estates team and have more than 24 years’ experience in the private client sector”

I have worked in the estates team at Higgs LLP for almost 10 years. I initially started in the team providing secretarial support to the fee earners and progressed to a legal assistant.

As a legal assistant, I assist the wider team with all aspects of estate administration, including applying for grants of representation and assisting with the day to day running of the estate files.

I have developed a specialist knowledge in dealing with the sale and transfer of shareholdings.

During my time at Higgs, I have developed strong relationships with our clients often being the first point of contact for bereaved families and I enjoy offering all of our clients the support and guidance they need at such a difficult time.
