Beachcrofts loses partner to Cobbetts

Manchester firm Cobbetts has boosted its property practice with the appointment of a partner from Beachcroft Wansbroughs.

Anne Quirk joins Cobbetts after spending nine years as a partner at Beachcroft Wansbroughs' Manchester office.

Quirk is a commercial property specialist with particular experience in landlord and tenant and portfolio work. She says she is looking forward to being more involved in development work through her move. "It's a pleasure to join a firm with such a strong reputation for high-quality property work," she says.

Head of commercial property Stephen Benson says: "We have one of the largest, if not the largest, single property department of any firm in Manchester servicing a national and international client base. Anne's is one of a number of appointments at all levels within the division. We're very glad to have been successful in a market that is very difficult to recruit in at the moment."
