Higson will work closely with agency partner Jason Print. Gerald Eve said his was the fourth high-profile appointment to the Manchester team this year, following the arrival of partners David Law, Jason Print and Colin Harrop. Since Mark Walsh’s appointment as head of Gerald Eve’s Manchester Office in June 2014, the office has recruited nine new members of staff.
Walsh said: “A strong regional presence is central to Gerald Eve’s client offer, with this further appointment underlining the firm’s commitment to ongoing investment in this area. The arrival of Neil brings further strength to the Manchester office and broadens the scope of the agency team.”
Gerald Eve currently has a team of 26 working at its Manchester office, which forms part of a regional network alongside Birmingham, Cardiff, Glasgow, Leeds and Milton Keynes in addition to offices in the City and West End of London.
