Higgs completes sale for engineering consultancy

05 December 2022

Higgs LLP has advised the directors of an engineering consultancy on the sale of the business to a construction firm.

Richard Griffiths, Partner and Head of Corporate Law at the firm, supported Travis Baker as it was acquired by rapidly expanding RSK Group.

Travis Baker, which has two offices in Birmingham and Nottingham, will continue to employ its 40-plus team while directors Rob Travis, Dave Baker, Dave James and Ted Wake will continue to lead the business.

Joint managing directors Rob Travis and Dave Baker said: “Travis Baker has joined the RSK Group because it offers a diverse portfolio of projects around the world in technical disciplines that are both complementary to, and supportive of, much of what Travis Baker already does.

“This acquisition unlocks further growth opportunities not only for the business, but for our skilled engineers specialising in geo-environmental, civil and transport planning.

"Throughout the process of the sale of Travis Baker to the RSK Group, Higgs LLP, and in particular Richard Griffiths, have proven themselves time and time again.

"In what was initially quite a daunting process for the shareholders Richard and his team provided the advice and guidance needed to secure the right outcome."

Richard Griffiths said: “We’ve worked with Travis Baker for several years, supporting its business and growth, and are pleased to have advised the directors on the sale to RSK. We pride ourselves on building long-term relationships with our clients, and this has been a successful example of that. We wish Travis Baker the best as it embarks on the next chapter.”
