Nabarro has hired a former Halliwells partner to lead its Sheffield banking practice.
Dean Gormley previously worked in the Manchester office of Halliwells, which went into administration on 20 July.
At Nabarro he will drive the firm’s regional banking practice and also work with corporate clients on their financing requirements.
Nabarro senior partner Simon Johnston said: “Dean will make a great addition to the banking and finance team, who are currently seeing a lot of activity. We’re pleased to see the continual growth and importance of the Sheffield practice.”
Gormley trained at Eversheds and joined Halliwells in 2006, becoming a partner that year.
