Jane Biggs
Managing director

A trusted partner of law firms and individual lawyers with a reputation for absolute discretion, Jane co-founded Bygott Biggs over 20 years ago. Since then she’s carefully nurtured her network of connections with key legal decision makers across the Midlands and beyond. Behind the scenes Jane is responsible for many high profile partner and team moves, and is increasingly instrumental in shaping the growth strategy of numerous law firms, as well as advising on consolidations through merger and/ or acquisition. Away from the office her interests include travel, yoga and walking her big brown dog.

Bygott Biggs have developed knowledge of the marketplace that is a league above other recruiters. They make the candidate feel like they are their only candidate and the level of support provided is beyond comparison.

Catherine Boyle
Director, North

With over 25 years’ experience, Catherine brings an exceptional level of market understanding across the North of England. A well-known figure, she is a trusted advisor to many law firms and individual lawyers seeking a discrete, consultative approach when considering career options.

Her longevity in the market place has meant that many of the candidates that Catherine worked with in the early part of her career have now become the decision makers in the law firms today.

Catherine's clientbase spreads across Yorkshire, Manchester and the North West, Newcastle and the North East. She works closely with candidates at all levels from Newly Qualified to Partner level.

A mother of two adult children, Catherine’s interests out of work include cooking and eating out, entertaining, keeping fit and interior design.

Thank you Catherine for finding the perfect firm for me to move my career forward and for taking the time to understand me and what type of firm would be the best fit
