Belfast co-head Mark Blair said: “Andrew’s collaborative and client-focused reputation makes him the perfect fit for our Shoosmiths Belfast office. With extensive corporate experience paired with specialist infrastructure and energy knowledge, his appointment will no doubt be a success both internally and with clients.”

Mr Jennings said: “The Shoosmiths Northern Ireland team has had rapid growth to date and I am excited to build upon its ambitious practices. I look forward to working with the national corporate team with its strong private equity credentials, as well as growing the firm’s infrastructure and energy presence within the local market.”

The hire is the latest in a series of key appointments for Shoosmiths, following the appointment of corporate partner Grant Edwards in July and banking and finance partner Anna Vangrove in April.
