Stephenson Harwood has boosted its energy practice with the hire of senior associate Marc Hammerson from Vinson & Elkins.
Hammerson has joined the firm as a corporate partner and will focus on oil and gas, power projects and M&A in the energy industry.
Vinson declined to comment on the departure, but it has been recruiting over the last year following a rash of exits, which followed the collapse of its largest client Enron two years ago.
