Stephenson Harwood has bolstered its banking and asset finance capabilities with the hire of Christopher St John Smith from CMS Cameron McKenna.
Smith, a specialist in the transport and energy sectors, joins as a partner in the London banking and asset finance practice. He was previously a partner in Camerons' asset finance team.
