Leading Midlands law firm Higgs & Sons is celebrating after winning the prestigious Black Country Chamber Professional Services Firm award 2010.
Senior partner, Ian Shovlin, was presented with the award this week by Mark Prisk, MP and Minister of State for Business and Enterprise at a special gala lunch in Wolverhampton.
Speaking of the accolade, Ian said: “2010 is proving to be an extremely exciting year for the Higgs team. Earlier in the year we moved 155 of our people to some of the best office facilities in the Black Country with a £1.5 million move to the Waterfront Business Park.
“To meet the needs of our clients, we have also recruited 16 lawyers and five support staff this year.
“Now, to be honoured by the Black Country Chamber in its annual awards is the icing on the cake.
“Our aim has always been to provide businesses and individual clients of the Black Country and beyond with the very best legal advice and care and to be recognised for this is great news for everyone at Higgs.
“Higgs has achieved its success due to the loyalty and support of our clients, professional advisors, suppliers and colleagues. We really value our relationships with them and thank them for helping us to win this award.”
