Offshore firm Harneys has hired Marco Martins as a senior associate to head its Latin America practice.
Martins joins from Norton Rose, where he spent five years holding positions including client knowledge counsel and co-manager of knowledge management. Prior to that he was with Shearman & Sterling in both California and London.
Development partner Peter Tarn said: "Latin American, and Brazil in particular, are key to our strategic objectives but have not previously received the investment they deserve.
"Marco's appointment is a huge step towards redressing that balance and we are actively seeking to build a team around him."
Martins is Brazilian, but is a qualified lawyer in both England and New York.
