In brief: Dibbs Brum poaches Eversheds duo

Dibb Lupton Alsop in Birmingham has poached Graeme Bradley, head of Eversheds' Birmingham construction team and his assistant Rebecca Roth-Biester, soon after picking up five members of Edge & Ellison's commercial team. Bradley said his move was prompted by “the prospect of building the best construction team in the Midlands”. Ian Jolie, managing partner of Eversheds Birmingham, said: “It is sad he is going, but Graeme is an individualist and it was not working out here. He was not with us long enough to make the Eversheds team the best in the Midlands, but his move provides the catalyst to reorganise our construction division and appoint a new head, Malcolm Titcomb.”
