Hammonds international head of construction and engineering David Moss has quit the firm and is taking two partners to McGrigors’ Manchester office.
Moss resigned in March along with Manchester office chief Jonathan Edwards. The pair quit on one of only two days each year on which equity partners are able to resign from the firm. Edwards, who has joined Manchester rival DWF, has been succeeded at Hammonds by partner Jane Haxby.
Moss will join McGrigors with Manchester partner Paul Giles and Leeds-based partner Richard Anderson.
McGrigors opened in Manchester in 2007 with the aim of developing a construction and projects office. These latest additions bring its construction partnership to nine.
Hammonds managing partner Peter Crossley said in a statement: “We operate a fully integrated property, planning and construction team and, in anticipation of an upturn in demand, we are in the process of overhauling this department to ensure we are well-positioned to take advantage as activity returns.”
