Triple loss at Weightmans prompts strategy shift

Weightmans is redirecting its corporate and commercial strategy as three department heads leave the Manchester office. Head of corporate Jonathan Shorrock, head of corporate recovery Glyn Willmott and head of planning and environment John Holmes will all quit in March in what is understood to be separate career moves. Managing partner Patrick Gaul said the split was “consensual” and that Weightmans would continue to focus on commercial and commercial property work, particularly in Liverpool.
