Higgs & Sons and The Black Country - proud and progressive

Higgs & Sons and The Black Country - proud and progressive

 At Higgs & Sons we are very proud of our Black Country heritage - a region renowned for its industry and endeavour.

Our founder, Black Country man, Joseph Higgs was admitted as a solicitor in 1875 and whilst the name Higgs & Son(s) did not appear for another 23 years when the first of Joseph’s sons joined his father’s practice, this marked the beginning of a business that has established itself as one of the region’s leading law firms. One that has worked hard to remain loyal to its roots whilst embracing a forward thinking, innovative philosophy.

However, it is not just a shared history that is a source of pride. As we mark Black Country day on 14th July, both Higgs and the region in which it has been based for more than 140 years, are proud to be celebrating their ongoing success.

Higgs - proud and progressive:

  • Aggregate corporate deal value in 2017 in excess of £327.5 million with 2018 set to surpass last year’s record figures
  • Unification of Higgs’ residential and commercial property offerings to create one of the largest full-service Property teams in the region (21 specialist advisers)
  • Five key Partner appointments made during 2018 to strengthen firm-wide offering – over 230 employees in total
  • Global reach of the firm includes USA, Canada, Thailand, Russia, France, Sweden, Republic of Ireland, South Africa, Australia
  • Recent 20+ retail store portfolio disposal for high street retailer. Value: £30m
  • Over £65,000 raised for charity in the last three years alone

Benefiting from significant investment over recent years, the Black Country - just like Higgs - is a success story that continues to grow. From all at Higgs & Sons, we wish you a very Happy Black Country Day!
