Oliver Ward-Jones' Summary

I qualified in 2010 and specialise in all aspects of insolvency law with a particular focus on corporate restructuring. My clients include insolvency practitioners, companies and directors.

My work includes advising distressed businesses, drafting and negotiation of asset purchase agreements, assisting insolvency practitioners in the recovery of assets and advising directors in relation to their obligations under the Companies Act and Insolvency Act.

Higgs & Sons was named 'Corporate Law Firm of the Year' at the 2013 Insider Midlands Dealmakers awards, praised by the businesses which voted for us with comments such as “my ‘go to’ firm of solicitors”, “dynamic, proactive and restless desire to meet clients' needs” and “a perfect blend of technical excellence and an approachable nature”.
