Higgs quartet on the steps to success

Four lawyers from Higgs & Sons’ private client team have all been successful in recent examinations to join a global legal organisation.

Associate Sarah Cairns and solicitor Nick Bennett have both recently passed their final examinations to become full members of The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP) joining solicitor Verity Kirby who qualified as a full member last year. The department now boasts 16 full STEP members.

Solicitor Sarah Darby has also passed the first of her four STEP exams with a distinction.

STEP is the professional body for the trust and estate profession across the world, providing members with a local, national and international learning and business network.

Peter Gosling, head of Higgs’ highly respected private client department, said: “Our congratulations go to Verity, Sarah and Nick for becoming full members of STEP and also to Sarah Darby for achieving a distinction, it’s excellent news for them, the department and our clients.”

Higgs’ private client team, which is one of the largest in the Midlands, acts for many families and trusts across the Midlands and beyond and is based at Higgs’ headquarters at 3 Waterfront Business Park in Brierley Hill.
