Higgs & Sons makes senior appointment to the Corporate team

 

Article date:  28/04/2014

Higgs & Sons has made a senior appointment to its corporate team.

Adrian Cutler has joined Higgs as a partner from DWF, bringing with him more than 15 years of experience in mid-market mergers and acquisitions. As a partner in corporate services, he has a proven track record of advising owner managers and entrepreneurs on a variety of corporate transactions and projects.

Commenting on his appointment, Adrian said: "I am excited at the prospect of helping Higgs & Sons to continue its ascendancy, and I am hoping to build on the already strong and positive reputation of the corporate team and the firm generally.

"I joined Higgs having concluded that the unabated market consolidation in the legal sector was starving the mid-market owner manager of a credible alternative choice to the national and international firms in terms of corporate advisory work.

"In my opinion, there are very few firms that demonstrate a commitment to the small and medium enterprise market place and that can offer the quality of technical ability and service delivery as well as Higgs can."

Adrian has considerable experience in private equity deals, acting for a number of private equity houses and management teams alike.  He is also well versed in green and clean tech, recycling and high growth and early stage businesses.

Nick Taylor, head of corporate at Higgs, said of Adrian's appointment: "This is an exciting addition to our growing team. Adrian brings with his the experience we need to meet the expectations of our clients.

 "2014 has been fast-paced and hugely successful for the corporate team thus far, and our objective is to continue adding high calibre individuals like Adrian to further expand our offering in the Midlands and beyond."

Higgs was recently named corporate law firm of the year at the Midlands Insider Dealmakers event and, in 2013, the team was ranked as the third most active law firm for corporate deals in the region according to Experian's annual report.

Headquartered at the Waterfront Business Park in Brierley Hill, the firm employs more than 200 people, which includes over 100 specialist lawyers.
