Cripps’ head of residential estates to retire
Kerry Glanville, the former senior partner at legacy firm Pemberton Greenish and head of residential estates at Cripps, is due to retire in April 2023.
Since qualifying in 1986, Glanville has enjoyed a successful career as a real estate litigator, acting in a broad range of real estate disputes. In 1998, she joined Lee & Pembertons (which later became Pemberton Greenish) as a partner, rising to senior partner by the 2018 merger with Cripps.
With particular expertise in leasehold enfranchisement matters, Glanville has been involved in most of the landmark enfranchisement cases over the last 20 years, many of which have been decided by the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court/House of Lords. Her revered legal acumen and dedication to client service earned Glanville coveted places in the Lawyer Hot 100 (2019) and the Legal 500 Hall of Fame.
Glanville commented: “I have been fortunate; throughout my career I have been able to learn from some of the very best practitioners in their field, get involved in varied and challenging work for, and with, some amazing people and make many friends along the way. I know that Cripps will continue to go from strength to strength and wish my colleagues every success in the future. For me, it is time for a change of direction.”
Gavin Tyler, Cripps managing partner, said: “Kerry has not only made an outstanding contribution to Cripps, she has been a true leader in her field, helping to shape the law on leasehold enfranchisement. Through her dedication to her clients – putting them at the heart of all she does – Kerry has embodied everything we aspire to be as a firm. We wish her all the best in her retirement and look forward to continuing the excellence she has embedded in our residential estates practice.”
