(Reuters) - Baker Botts has hired corporate partner David Marshall in London from Norton Rose Fulbright, the firm said on Monday.

Marshall has more than 20 years of M&A experience with a focus on private equity, venture capital and growth capital transactions, particularly in the tech industry, the firm said in a statement.

Before joining Norton Rose in 2016, Marshall worked as a partner at UK-headquartered law firms RPC and Wragge & Co, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Texas-founded Baker Botts recently moved offices in London, which Mark Rowley, its partner-in-charge in the city, said shows a commitment to growing in the British capital.

A representative for Norton Rose did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Marshall's departure.

Baker Botts said Monday it had hired Juliana Sersen as a partner in Austin, Texas. Sersen was previously an assistant general counsel for regulatory and litigation at the Electric Reliability Council of Texas Inc.
