The Sheffield office of national firm Nabarro Nathanson has hired James Hartley from failed Liverpool shipbuilder Cammell Laird.
Hartley has joined the commercial dispute resolution department as a senior lawyer, bringing the number of lawyers in the team to six. Concerning his return to private practice, Hartley said: "My move to Nabarros gives me the opportunity to work with likeminded people at the cutting edge of commercial dispute resolution." Sheffield litigation partner Gareth Watkins added: "James helps to cement our growing reputation in this field." Accredited Centre for Dispute Resolution (CEDR) mediator Hartley has a range of dispute resolution experience. He played a lead role in resolving a £50m contractual dispute for Cammell Laird. The shipbuilder was forced to call in the receivers in April, after it became apparent that there were insufficient orders to keep the company afloat.
