North West firm DWF has added another partner to its growing haul of former Weightman Vizards property lawyers.
Construction partner Andrew Davies is set to move to DWF’s Liverpool office in August.
He will be reunited with former Weightman Vizards commercial property partner Lynne McFaul who joined the firm in May as well as associates Rhys Vaughan-Williams and Heidi Mayer who made the leap to DWF earlier this year.
The departures follow the recent loss of three Weightman Vizards partners, Mark Forman, Neil Kelly and James Powell, who left to form a commercial, media and intellectual property boutique.
On the upside, Weightman Vizards has seen revenue for the last financial year increase by around 9 per cent to £30.26m.
