Higgs opens doors to largest legal practice in the Black Country

This week Higgs & Sons officially opens its doors for business at its new prestigious Waterfront Business Park address.

The leading law firm has already given over 300 of its clients and contacts a sneak preview of the new premises at two high profile launch event evenings.

The move creates the largest legal practice in the Black Country, with 76 lawyers and a further 80 support staff relocating to the new premises in Brierley Hill’s Waterfront.

Higgs has spent the last five months refurbishing the new 30,000 square foot facility to create leading edge headquarters for its growing team and clients. The firm worked closely with fit out specialists Morgan Lovell and designers Grant Thorp on the new building. The deal was one of the largest commercial property transactions of 2009 and was supported by NatWest.

Ian Shovlin, senior partner, said at the official opening of the new building: “In bringing over 150 of our team together under one roof, we can now offer all services, meetings and events from one fantastic location.

“2010 is the 135th anniversary of Higgs & Sons and I can think of no more fitting tribute than to take the firm to the next stage in its development.

“The new facility means that our specialist lawyers can continue to offer clients the very best legal advice but now in a purpose designed building which not only meets our requirements today but also as we grow in the future.

“We now have the premises to match our great team and we look forward to offering a complete service to all our business and private clients at our new home for many years to come.”

Higgs signed a 10 year lease on the new building. The move will bring together Higgs’ team which is based across offices in Brierley Hill and Stourbridge. The firm will keep its presence in Kingswinford to serve the local community.
