Addleshaws boosts Manchester real estate with team hire
Addleshaw Goddard has hired a six-partner real estate team from Irwin Mitchell in Manchester.
The team of six is led by Irwin Mitchell’s regional real estate head Anita Weightman. Joining her in the move are real estate partners Paul Barnard, Patrick Duffy, Chris Perrin, Tony Weightman, and Emily Williams.
Weightman joined Irwin Mitchell in 2013, after spending over a decade at DLA Piper, first as a real estate partner and eventually as the firm’s regional practice head. She and her team will join Addleshaws’ real estate team under its head Peter Kershaw.
The Irwin Mitchell Manchester real estate practice the team leaves behind will now be led by the branch’s managing partner Roy Beckett.
