Property litigation specialist lays new foundations at Higgs


Article date:  13/01/2009

A property litigation specialist is moving from a large Birmingham law firm to join Higgs & Sons' growing dispute resolution team.

Nyree Applegarth has joined Black Country leaders Higgs from Wragges where she was a property litigation specialist for the last seven years.

With a wealth of experience in litigation, Nyree joins Higgs' dispute resolution department as it gets set for one of its busiest years yet.  The team now numbers 10 people, having stood at just four in 2007 and is one of the most respected in the region.

Nyree's experience covers many areas including hostile and non-hostile lease renewals, interim and terminal dilapidations claims, rent review issues, residential and commercial service charge recovery, squatters proceedings and all types of possession claims, property related insolvency issues, title rectification and distress and forfeiture proceedings.

Speaking of her move to Higgs, Nyree said: "As the credit crunch continues to squeeze, litigation is fast becoming a sought after specialism.  The Higgs team has some of the best experience in the region and I am looking forward to being a part of the team's future development."

Higgs & Sons' Head of Dispute Resolution, Julia Lowe, said of the appointment: "The department is going from strength to strength.  Our strategy is to grow the number of specialists across our key areas of commercial, property and contentious probate disputes and debt recovery.  Nyree's appointment gives us even more experience to offer our growing client portfolio."
