Campbell Hooper raided Pinsent Masons for property partner Peter Stockdale, along with a team of two associates and five plot-sales specialists.
Stockdale joins as a partner in the firm’s regeneration group and has a practice that focuses on town centre redevelopments and urban renewal projects.
Campbell Hooper managing partner Jeremy Dutton said: “Pinsent Masons is trying to grow in value and sometimes that means some areas don’t fit so well but do so for us.”
Dutton said developer clients such as Bellway Homes, Berkeley Homes and Gleeson will be moving to Campbell Hooper with Stockdale.
Dutton said the firm was also looking to expand into property investment and commercial communications matters.
