Coopers & Lybrand has appointed Inland Revenue stamp duty solicitor Michael Quinlan to head its stamp duty group following a series of departures from its law team. Coopers had been planning to follow Arthur Andersen and Price Waterhouse in setting up a standalone law firm with Peter Preston, a former Theodore Goddard partner, at its core.
