Weightmans takes on Keoghs property partner” />Weightmans has raided local rival Keoghs for property partner Anne Dobie (left) in a continued push to bolster its real estate practice. Dobie joins Weightmans’ Manchester office after just two years with Keoghs. She moved to the firm from Ricksons in 2003. The hire comes as Weightmans celebrates a solid first-half year, having made £16.5m in the six months to the end of October. The figure puts the firm on course for an increase of at least 5 per cent on last year’s total turnover of £31.7m.
