New recruit Gary joins successful Higgs team

A leading law firm has appointed a new lawyer to join its successful employment team.

Gary Dalton is the latest recruit to Higgs & Sons’ employment department and he says he cannot wait to start meeting his new clients.

Gary, 28, from Wolverhampton, said he was delighted to have joined a growing firm which still placed its relationship with its clients at the heart of its operation.

“It is a real draw to work somewhere which affords you the opportunity to get out and meet clients face-to-face and build up and develop a long-term relationship with them,” said Gary.

“I will be working with a range of clients, from regional firms to large PLCs, and across various sectors. I will be advising clients on a broad range of both contentious and non-contentious employment work. As most of our clients have a base in the UK I will get the chance to meet them personally and learn about their businesses, which is something I am really looking forward to.

Higgs itself is growing and the firm has recruited a lot of high profile individuals over the past few years. There is a tremendous amount of experience in the firm for me to learn from and I am looking forward to becoming an integral part of the team.”

Gary joins Higgs from Birmingham-based Eversheds, where he worked since qualifying. He has previously worked in Dubai on a legal secondment and in Spain, where he specialised in international recruitment.

Higgs & Sons works from two offices in the Black Country – Waterfront Business Park in Brierley Hill and Kingswinford. The firm employs more than 200 people, which includes over 100 specialist lawyers.
