Norton Rose has hired Baker Botts partner Joseph Tirado to head its international arbitration practice to plug the hole left when the firm's former global head of dispute resolution Peter Rees jumped ship.
Tirado's specialises in energy and infrastructure meaning that, in terms of practice, he comes in as a direct replacement for Rees, who last March announced his move to Debevoise & Plimpton to head its international arbitration practice. Tirado is US and UK-qualified. He joins from the London office of Texan firm Baker Botts.
Norton Rose's global head of dispute resolution Antony Dutton said: "The industry sectors in which Joe specialises are aligned with the business areas Norton Rose is deeply involved in, and our clients will undoubtedly benefit from the expertise he brings".
Rees was a born and bred Norton Rose lawyer and has been at the firm for 26 years. He stood down as global head of dispute resolution after nine years in the role. Four years ago he ran for chief executive, losing out to Peter Martyr.
