Co-Managing Partners at WilmerHale to Step Aside
Bill Lee and Bill Perlstein, co-managing partners at the law firm, WilmerHale, are stepping down in order to open up the ranks for new leadership.
However, the two partners will stay on until January 1st, 2012, when Susan Murley, the current chair of the firm's transactional department, and Robert Novick, the chair of the regulatory and government affairs department, will enter into a three-year term as co-managing partners.
Exiting managing partner Lee, had this to say of his replacements, ''[Murley and Novick] have been leaders within the firm for some time and this election is a natural progression. They come to these new leadership positions with a very broad and real understanding of WilmerHale's practices, clients, culture and law firm economics— I am confident the firm will excel under their leadership.''
