Manches scores double lateral for practice push

Manches has bumped up its construction and property departments with the appointment of two partners.

Commercial property partner David Mills is joining Manches from Field Fisher Waterhouse while non-contentious construction specialist Chris Fellowes has jumped ship from Tite & Lewis.

The move leaves Ernst & Young’s former tied law firm Tite & Lewis with five partners and no construction capability.

Manches now has construction and commercial property groups boasting four and eight partners respectively.
