The Manchester-based surveyor, Roger Hannah & Co, has recruited Stephen Lashmar from Keppie Massie to bolster its compulsory purchase and valuation team.
Lashmar spent 10 years at Keppie Massie and was head of the firm's Manchester office, specialising in advising public sector and developer client on complex compulsory purchase matters.
Simon Cook, director of Roger Hannah & Co, said: "Stephen's recruitment comes at an ideal time with our new expanded city centre office. He joins me, Angela Connor and Dan Newton in a four-strong compulsory purchase team providing an unrivalled compulsory purchase specialism in the North West and beyond. It's a sign of our intent to become the market leader in compulsory purchase advice."
Lashmar said: "I am very excited at joining Roger Hannah & Co at this time with their expanded Manchester operations and an opportunity to create a first class compulsory purchase team. We can lead the way in this field providing a challenge to many of our national rivals."
