Dibbs loses property partner

Dibb Lupton Alsop property partner Graeme Webber is leaving the firm for a business venture that is shrouded in mystery.

Webber qualified with Dibbs and has been with the firm for more than 12 years. He is based at the firm’s Leeds office.

“People used to say if you cut me through the middle it would be like Blackpool rock and I would have Dibb Lupton Alsop running through the middle of me. I was instrumental in setting up the property litigation practice and have enjoyed most of my time at the firm, but I decided it was time for a change,” he says.

Webber is tight-lipped about his plans but says he will continue to practise as a lawyer in his planned business venture. “I am having conversations with people to look at how we can move our ideas into reality and into a profit-making vehicle.

“I am not staying in Leeds. Whatever I do I will not be coming back to Leeds in the short term.”

Webber resigned from Dibbs in November and will leave this Friday.
