Higgs LLP is an energetic, stable law firm where long-term relationships, community, reputation, partnership and balance matters. Our future strategy is built on a set of three strategic principles: our clients, our people, our way.

When it comes to our people, the team is everything at Higgs LLP – an environment of sharing and collaboration, and a real sense of loyalty to each other and the firm. That is coupled with a desire for everyone to learn and develop. We are always striving to be better. We enjoy what we do. We are genuinely interested in our clients and want them to feel a part of the firm too.

Our approach to our people draws on enjoyment, health and wellbeing, developing talent, technical excellence, training, reward and recognition.

Our training programme works in the practical world with real clients, caseloads and responsibilities.

We'll give you flexibility of choice of seats, helping you find the area of our profession where you will excel.

You'll be given one to one involvement with partners and other lawyers, who will share their experience, giving you a real hands-on approach.

You'll benefit from regular appraisals with your supervisor, an 'open door' support policy, professional training courses and mentoring from one of our partners. You'll also be assigned a current trainee as your 'buddy'; someone who has been in your position and can answer all of your questions.

Higgs is different from your average law firm. We successfully combine traditional values with an innovative approach to legal problems which has helped to attract an impressive client base whilst also staying true to our local community.

Our people and our clients are attracted by our ability to offer a full range of services. We are proud to provide a supportive and friendly working environment within which both colleagues and clients can thrive.

Our trainees form the lifeblood of the firm and benefit from hands-on experience and responsibility from the very beginning. Join us on our journey. Together we grow.
