Anastasia Kelly, who recently resigned as general counsel of American International Group reportedly over compensation issues, has joined DLA Piper as of counsel in its Washington D.C. office.

DLA Piper Global Chairman Francis B. Burch Jr. explained the addition in a press release.

“It would be difficult to identify another lawyer in this country with more complex corporate governance and board crisis experience, or more character, grit and determination than Stasia Kelly,” Burch said. “She has a well earned reputation as the go-to counsel for companies in difficult circumstances and she will be a tremendous asset for our clients as they navigate this volatile market and these challenging times.”

Kelly joined AIG in 2006 and was named vice chairman in January 2009 following the company’s tax-funded bailout. Prior to joining AIG, Kelly had served as general counsel of MCI/WorldCom and Fannie Mae from 1995-98.

“Stasia brings a wealth of legal and management experience. She has dealt with enormous corporate governance challenges during her career, and her perspective is incredibly valuable in the current economic environment,” said Roger Meltzer, global chair of DLA Piper’s corporate and finance practice. “Our global platform is the ideal setting for Stasia to leverage her extensive experience and return to private legal practice.”

DLA Piper has approximately 3,500 lawyers with 67 offices in 29 countries.
