MSI’s Illinois law member Levenfeld Pearlstein is pleased to announce that David Solomon will lead its Corporate & Securities Practice Group, and Laura Friedel will take over as head of the Labor & Employment Practice Group.
Solomon, who joined LP as a partner in 2009, succeeds Mary Wasik, who had led the group since 2013. Friedel replaces Peter Donati, who had led the Labor & Employment group since 2005. Two of LP’s highly-respected and sought-after attorneys, both Wasik and Donati will remain at the firm as partners.
These practice group leadership transitions are a part of LP’s deliberate succession planning protocol, designed to provide opportunities for different individuals at the firm to serve in leadership roles. Since its early days, LP’s leadership has cultivated leaders through a formal training program, and its successful implementation continues to create future leaders with skills that build upon those of their predecessor.
LP’s commitment to succession planning feeds into its singular focus on creating an exceptional client experience. The firm understands that succession in the leadership of the firm’s practice groups is an essential element to aligning support structures and cultivating effective practice group, which in turn leads to an unparalleled client experience.
