Rachel Higgs has been helping clients to resolve commercial disputes for more than 25 years and currently leads our commercial disputes team in Norwich. This sometimes involves looking for a low-cost, pragmatic solution.
On other occasions, it means a tough and tenacious battle through to trial or arbitration. Mostly, it involves guiding clients through a series of judgement calls to ensure that their case is put forward in a clear and compelling way, and that the risks and benefits of litigation or other forms of dispute resolution are fully understood.
Whatever the type of case — a contract dispute, a shareholder dispute, a professional negligence claim or some litigation arising from a corporate transaction — Higgs will adopt a straight talking, clear thinking and commercial approach to help clients minimise the risk and achieve a satisfactory outcome.
