L to R Nick Taylor, Nick Moxon and Paul Hunt v2Higgs & Sons is pleased to announce the upcoming appointment of Nick Taylor as the firm’s next managing partner.

Nick will take over from Paul Hunt with effect from 1 December 2019, the start of Higgs’ new financial year. 

Speaking of the new appointment, senior partner Nick Moxon said: “Nick is Higgs through and through. He is full of ideas and energy and I know that he will apply his considerable skills to building on what are without doubt solid foundations created by Paul.

“Paul has achieved so much during his 18 years in the role, and has supported three senior partners – David Higgs, Ian Shovlin and in more recent years me. He has proved himself to be a safe pair of hands, a very steady hand on the tiller and wise counsel to many.”

As managing partner Nick will be responsible for the operations and performance of the business.

He said: “Higgs is an agile but stable law firm where balance, long-term relationships, partnership and community matters. I’m looking forward to directing the strategy of the firm towards continuing profitable growth by ensuring we remain focussed at all times on our people and our clients.”

Upon qualification in 1999, Nick joined Higgs’ business services team which has seen considerable year on year growth during the decade in which Nick has headed up the department.  Nick’s role as head of the business services team has seen him responsible for the firm’s corporate, commercial, tax & business wealth preservation, insolvency, succession planning and company secretarial teams, a role that will be taken over by John Heaton from December.

Alongside his managing partner role, Nick will remain an active part of the corporate team.

Paul Hunt’s new role will see him head up the firm’s business succession planning team.

He said: “Owner-managed businesses are the bedrock of Higgs and we believe that for the good of the region we need to encourage early and effective planning for the future ownership and management of our clients. I would like to think I am practising what I preach, and will be leaving our managing partner role in very capable hands.”
