Washington: Arnold Schwarzenegger has hired an attorney to fight his looming divorce battle with Maria Shriver.

Attorney Bob Kaufman has already been tackling some sensitive issues of the split.

According to sources, Kaufman has already been in touch with Shriver``s attorney, Laura Wasser and they are ‘moving forward’ with divorce negotiations, reports TMZ.

Kaufman and Wasser are both specialists in keeping the proceedings out of the public eye, something that both Schwarzenegger and Shriver would value right now.
