What can Rachel do for you?

Rachel has been helping clients resolve commercial disputes for over 30 years. She is known for her good judgement, clear thinking and straight talking approach which enables clients to weigh risk and reward and maximise the chances of a successful outcome.

Rachel specialises in complex high-value contract disputes, disputes arising from business sales, shareholder and partnership disputes and commercial fraud.

Supporting your ambitions

Over the last couple of years, Rachel has helped an NHS hospital resolve a £30 million outsourcing dispute, a global baggage handler exit a loss-making contract, a manufacturing company avoid injunction proceedings for misuse of confidential information, and a food supplier pursue a supermarket under the Groceries Supply Code of Practice.

In every case, Rachel collaborates with her client to set astute and realistic objectives and devise a case strategy for achieving those objectives. She is a firm believer that outcome is more important than process and is equally at home with litigation, arbitration, expert determination, mediation or negotiation.

What do others say?

Legal directories, Chambers and Legal 500, say:

"Clever, insightful and robust" partner Rachel Higgs attracts praise for her "no-nonsense views on how to tackle a case; her advice is top quality in comparison not only to regional firms, but also City firms",

"Strong and technically brilliant", and

​Her "incredible knowledge and informative responses put clients in the driving seat".

What else should you know?

Rachel has been surprised by the number of times she's been described by clients using words beginning with the letter "R". These have included "responsive", "robust", "resolute", "realistic" and "risk-aware", which probably sums up her approach to dispute resolution. So far, no client has described her as "really annoying", though those words may have been uttered by opponents.
