Norton Rose Says Stanley Hartt Joins as Counsel

Stanley Hartt has been hired by law firm Norton Rose LLP in Canada from Macquarie Group Ltd. (MQG)’s Canadian unit, where he was chairman.

Hartt, a former chief of staff to former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, will provide “strategic advice to domestic and international clients,” Norton Rose said today in an announcement on its website.

Hartt left Macquarie and joined Norton Rose’s Toronto office this month, Peter Zvanitajs, a spokesman for Norton Rose said in a phone interview today.

Mulroney, Canada’s Prime Minister from 1984 to 1993, is listed as a senior partner in Montreal on Norton Rose’s website.

Stephen Yan, a Macquarie spokesman, declined to comment.
