Law firm CMS has hired a PPP transport expert from Dentons.

The firm appointed David Moore as a partner for its infrastructure and project finance team in London.

Moore said: “The firm has an excellent transport and infrastructure practice and I look forward to supplementing this and to developing new opportunities, both in the UK and further afield."
