Kaminskaite-Salters, who joins as a senior adviser, has spent the last year on secondment at the ­Department for Business, Enterprise & Regulatory Reform (BERR).

Norton Rose climate change and carbon finance chief Anthony Hobley said Kaminskaite-Salters coming on board will complement the current practice and give it a more focused regulatory dimension as clients look for advice in ­relation to the impact on new policies such as the international climate change negotiations for the post-2012 period.
