Glaisyers lands Cobbetts property partner

Glaisyers has hired Cobbetts partner Eric Quirk to strengthen its commercial property team. Quirk, who specialises in property development and investment, leaves Cobbetts after three years as a partner to join Glaisyers. Quirk told The Lawyer: “I chose Glaisyers as it’s a less management-driven, very enthusiastic midmarket firm. Even quite large clients often feel overcharged by larger firms for essentially medium-sized work.” Glaisyers head of commercial litigation Nick Johnson said: “We fully expect [Quirk] to play a crucial role and we look forward to benefiting from his expertise.”
