“The service was efficient and personal without being intrusive. An excellent job. We would highly recommend Higgs & Sons.”

Helen Smith

“Higgs & Sons' Corporate & Commercial team is 'proactive, knowledgeable and solution-focused'.”

Legal 500

“Whether it was employment law, property or the acquisition itself, the team at Higgs & Sons gave us confidence that every aspect of the deal had been carefully and expertly managed. We look forward to continue working in partnership with them as our business needs develop.”

Neil Clifton, Cube Precision

“There is no one else I would want to work with as the service Higgs & Sons provides is outstanding.”

Felicia Geoffroy, NES Limited

“My experience with Higgs & Sons was excellent. My solicitor Sarah Arnold was more than helpful and gave me reassurance and guidance in a very difficult time. Looking back, I am glad Higgs & Sons were there to help me, as I would have found it very difficult to organise everything that had to be done by myself, due to the road traffic collision I had that was not my fault. I can't thank Sarah Arnold and Higgs & Sons enough.”

Jonathan Hensen

“Several personal recommendations led me to Higgs & Sons' Susheel Gupta, Jody Webb & Katie Willems, whose professional advice and expertise I am extremely grateful for. The superior level of customer care provided made all the difference and I would wholeheartedly recommend the firm to anyone in a similar situation.”

RIchard Hill, Heritage Property

“It is good to deal with a company that has so many specialists in different sectors.”

Chambers and Partners

“Thanks to Higgs & Sons not only are we now able to support over 400 carers of children and 120 adult carers, but we can provide support to many more vulnerable groups and individuals throughout our community.”

Rachael Gardener, We Love Carers

“We have always been pleased with the level of service we receive from Higgs, no matter which department we call on. They are accessible and approachable, they are local to us, always available either on the end of the phone or in person, and offer a high level of service and reassurance.”

David Springthorpe, Angle Ring

“My husband and I have dealt with Higgs & Sons for over 30 years. Now that I am on my own I feel I can trust and rely on Higgs & Sons to do the best possible job for me.”

Elaine Williams

“I wanted to say how grateful we are for the smooth, efficient service that you provided in dealing with the sale of my mother's house. It has been a very difficult and upsetting couple of years but the friendly and reliable support that Higgs' has provided in the course of dealing with Power of Attorney, Probate and the Conveyance has been a great help to us all. As far as I'm concerned, something is only expensive if you don't get what you pay for and that certainly can't be said of Higgs. You thoroughly deserve your great reputation.”

Rob Mainwaring, WM Creative

“Having a trusted partner that understood the nature of Encription’s business and our ambitions was extremely important and that is exactly what we got with Higgs & Sons.”

Tony McDowell, Encription

“Caring, honest, well informed within their specialism, up to date with new and relevant adaptions to the law as it affects their client, approachable, impartial, act upon instructions and never lead to a specific conclusion, provide all the facts and encourage to choose the way forward in a non threatening manner. Higgs & Sons have the clients’ best interests at all times, financially and emotionally. I have found all my contacts to be professional, with in-depth knowledge, commitment to their clients, readily available, honest and committed.”

Gill Bellingham

“My case wasn't a straightforward one with financial aspects, which you presented in a way that left me feeling completely protected. Right through to the end you and your colleagues presented my documents and court papers in a watertight fashion... Higgs & Sons has given me an overwhelming satisfactory service throughout and I thank you all again.”

Keith Blacklaws

“Excellent company. Can't say anything more.”

Brian Carbert

“Highly efficient, professional and client-focused.”

Chambers and Partners

“We have been working with Higgs for many years, relying on their expert advice across several areas of our business.”

Joanne Taylor

“To share not only a Black Country heritage but also an ethos of strong family values is important to us, and in Higgs we have found a company with similar principles.”

David Springthorpe, Angle Ring

“The team at Higgs & Sons were fantastic at getting to the key points so quickly. Susheel Gupta and the team’s understanding of our business really helped get the deal done and I would wholeheartedly recommend Higgs to anyone in a similar situation.”

Rory Daly, SDL Bigwood

“The Corporate Tax team provides a ‘first-class service’ under the leadership of Susheel Gupta.”

Legal 500

“It was quite an investment in terms of time, but Higgs’ advisers worked extremely hard alongside our own specialist accountant to drive through this application and lay the foundations for future growth. Indeed we are already working on a project with Claire which has directly benefited from our Broadleaf experience.”

Richard Carroll, Tatton Hall Homes

“With such a major development it was essential that everyone involved was clear on the particular aspects of the contract. This is a system that relies on cutting edge digital technology, a relatively new area in terms of contractual agreements so we were keen to work with a trusted partner who could advise us on the specialist aspects of the contracts.”

Richard Newton, Tipton & Coseley Building Society

“Nyree and her team were fantastic. The invaluable advice and expertise we received were crucial factors in securing the future of WeLoveCarers. We are extremely grateful to have found a partner to whom we could turn for support and guidance in what was an extremely challenging time.”

I have every confidence in the legal advice provided and I am assured that every aspect and detail of the transaction will be dealt with to the highest standard. If I had to sum up your service in one word, it would be 'trust'.”

Sir Graham Meldrum

“Fast, efficient, informative, courteous, and willing to offer help and advice. Excellent service provided.”

Lynn Davis

“A good efficient and friendly service. A very good response to a very awkward time frame and purchaser.”

Mel Houghton

“We were always looking to move as quickly as possible on this deal, and it was thanks to the diligence of Nick, Jamie and the team at Higgs, and their obvious experience in transactions of this nature, that we were able to achieve a swift conclusion which encompassed everything we wanted to achieve at the outset.”

Tony McDowell, Encription

“Higgs & Sons made the procedure of selling my late father's home very easy. I reside in Southern Ireland so being so far away it was very comforting to know all was in excellent hands. Thank you very much Yvonne Boddey and associates.”

Yvonne Fitzgerald

“Yes I would recommend your services to others. We have used your company before and have always found you to be very helpful and prompt. Yvonne Boddey explained everything to me clearly stage by stage through the sale of my mother's house.”

M. Sheridan

“We needed to work to tight deadlines on a recent project which meant we required legal advice and processes which were particularly detailed, accurate, timely and efficient at every stage . Cherry Elliott and her team at Higgs & Sons delivered in every aspect.”

MIke Phillips, Allen Ford UK Limited

“Higgs & Sons’ practice ‘provides the perfect mix of skill, determination and pragmatism’.”

Legal 500

“When my daughter and I came to the office to meet Rhian Gray for the first time I found her to be extremely polite, friendly, courteous and kind. She explained everything clearly in detail and ensured any questions we had were answered. From that time information was relayed to us as progress was made by letter and email. At all times Rhian was patient and constantly working for my best interests and I cannot thank her enough. Even to recommending Yvonne Boddey to ensure the registration of my property was finalised.”

A. Gardener

“Higgs has the commitment to service of a family company with the resources of a much larger organisation. It was always prompt, well-informed and open for discussion as part of a strategy. When there were problems Higgs put every effort to correct them – the true measure of a good service. Individuals are well informed within Higgs. The company makes every effort to minimize costs and do not bill every minute of their time or write three page responses quoting case law when a client asks for some general guidance. Committed, street-wise, intelligent, fleet of foot, tough, resourceful, well-informed, there to win for the client. I have always found Higgs advice on points of law to be sound.”

Tim Woodbridge, Web Dynamics

“During the process we dealt with many professionals and teams who all seemed to work exceptionally hard to make the deal happen. Without question, the one team who stood out from the crowd and made a fantastic impression was yourself and Jody.(Please thank anybody in the back office who may have helped). Below are only some of the reasons why the Richard and Jody team are the top of the ratings! 1 - You had a good understanding of the deal and what we wanted to achieve 2 - You explained and summarised points exceedingly well so we could make the right decisions. 3 - You cared and worked very, very hard. 4 - Your enthusiasm and attention to detail. 5 - Your easy to deal / work with. 6 - You have sound judgment, give good advice and I trusted you.”

Bill Dawson, Wavenet

“Cherry Elliott at Higgs & Sons advised on the purchase of a plot of land for commercial use at Cranbrook, Exeter. Cranbrook is a large housing development with commercial centre to the west of Exeter. I found Cherry offered pragmatic, no-nonsense advice. She was good at keeping me up to speed and chasing the other side, and also understood the business imperatives behind the deal, which was extremely helpful. I would certainly recommend her for commercial property acquisition work.”

Mark James, Hall & Woodhouse Limited

“As a Kier Property Board Director, I have worked with Cherry Elliott of Higgs & Sons for just over two years on a Residential and Leisure scheme in the Birmingham area. Cherry has been one of the most efficient solicitors that I have worked with in the development industry in nearly 38 years. On the Birmingham scheme, Cherry acted for the landowners in a diligent, pragmatic and professional manner in disposing the site to a volume house-builder. Additionally, Cherry also delivered two S106 Agreement Deeds of Variation thus enabling two tranche land disposals on the Birmingham scheme. In all this residential and planning legal work, Cherry was particularly good in engaging with the Council’s internal legal team and pressing the house-builder’s external solicitors. Cherry also brought to the negotiations with the house-builder and their solicitor sound commercial and legal experience. I would, without question, recommend Cherry Elliott for commercial, residential and planning legal work.”

Kevin Dixon, Kier Property

“Dinah is committed, efficient and persuasive and possess all of the qualities you could wish for from a specialist planning lawyer. She is positive and determined to deliver the right result whilst being friendly and approachable at all times and puts clients at ease.”
