Ward Hadaway has scored a new head of commercial property by hiring former national managing partner Malcolm Lloyd from Pinsent Curtis Biddle
Lloyd is a senior figure in the North East, having been managing partner of Pinsents' Leeds office between 1996 and 1999. He joins the Newcastle firm in September. Ward Hadaway managing partner Jamie Martin said: "We're delighted that someone of Malcolm's calibre is joining us. He brings a wealth of property experience and a management skill set." Lloyd has been at Pinsents for more than 21 years, having joined the firm from original Pinsent Curtis merger partner Simpson Curtis. He said that he was looking forward to the challenge of a new firm and a new market. He was reluctant to say which clients would be joining him. Julian Tonks, Pinsents' senior partner, said: "We shall be very sorry to see Malcolm go. He has made a very strong contribution to the development of our firm."
