Higgs expands specialist clinical negligence team

Legal firm Higgs & Sons is expanding its specialist clinical negligence team with the appointment of a new solicitor.

Kate Campbell-Gunn joins the Black Country firm from Hull-based Neil Hudgell Solicitors, working within its satellite office in Solihull, where she handled predominantly high-value personal injury claims. She began her career in 2003 at a personal injury firm, Forum Law Solicitors as a paralegal, training with the firm and qualifying in 2007.

Speaking of her move to Higgs, Kate said: “I’m joining Higgs so that I can specialise in clinical negligence within a firm which attracts quality work and is highly respected both regionally and nationally for its work in this field.”

Kate will work alongside Clare Langford, a highly experienced partner in the clinical negligence department. Clare said: “The team is an extremely busy one and we work hard to give our clients the very best legal advice as well as care and support with their legal claims, which can often run over the course of several years.

“The addition of Kate to the team will enable us to take on even more work and help us to continue to give our clients the same high level of support they expect from Higgs.”

Higgs & Sons works from two offices in the Black Country, Waterfront Business Park in Brierley Hill and Kingswinford. The firm employs over 200 people, including 100 lawyers. It runs one of the most sought-after lawyer training programmes in the region.
