Higgs on the case with family team appointments

Higgs & Sons, which already has one of the largest family teams in the West Midlands, is expanding even further with the appointment of Victoria Fellows.

Victoria, who joins the firm as an assistant solicitor, brings a wealth of experience having been in family law for over five years. She qualified at Atter McKenzie in Evesham and then joined Irwin Mitchell in Birmingham for four years and has been at Sharratts Family Law in Wolverhampton, for the past year.

The appointment comes at the same time as Philip Barnsley takes up the headship of the department from Steven Jackson. Philip said: “Victoria has a very impressive background and will further strengthen our team. She adds another dimension to our diverse team, which can only be seen as a positive thing by clients.

“I am really excited about the coming year as the team is growing rapidly and we possess a range of strengths and experience which, when put together, forms an impressive portfolio for our clients.”

Victoria said: “My move to Higgs will enable me to utilise my experience as part of a growing department and I am thrilled to be working for one of the leading firms in the West Midlands.

Philip continues: “We have also taken on Rhian Jervis who is a newly qualified solicitor. She brings fresh ideas to the team and will be an additional support to clients and us. The coming months will be very exciting for the firm as we move to our new office at 3 The Waterfront. Our ambition is to grow our department even further in this new state-of-the-art environment.”

Steven Jackson remains with the firm as a specialist consultant in the team.
