Fladgates takes Jeffrey Green Russell property partner

Fladgate Fielder has hired property partner Mark Saunders from Jeffrey Green Russell’s seven-partner property group.

Saunders, a leisure market specialist, left Jeffrey Green on Friday 31 October and will join Fladgates on 10 November as a junior equity partner. Saunders was at the firm for seven years, having joined from Lovells in 1996.

The hire will effectively coincide with the departure of property develoment specialist Eamonn Cannon, who leaves Fladgates at the end of November to join Nabarros as a consultant.
