Higgs welcomes six new trainees
Leading Midlands law firm Higgs & Sons has welcomed six new trainees to the firm – one of the largest intakes of graduates in recent years.
Timothy Swallow, Rachel Seaton, Harry Rasmussen, James Osborne, Veronika Ulicna and Adam McGuire all join Higgs at its Brierley Hill headquarters at the Waterfront Business Park.
Ian Shovlin, senior partner, welcomed the new trainees. He said: “As we continue to expand the firm, we need to ensure we are recruiting the very best talent for the future.
“We have a proud history of our trainees remaining with the firm for their entire career, and indeed, I trained with the firm myself. These graduates represent the future of Higgs and on behalf of everyone at the firm, we’re delighted to welcome them on board.”
2011 has been a great year for Higgs & Sons, with the firm named Law Firm of the Year by the Birmingham Law Society and a finalist in the recent national Lawyer Awards as Regional Law Firm of the Year.
The firm employs nearly 200 people, including 90 lawyers.
