wilmerhaleWilmer Cutler Pickering Hale & Dorr LLP (WilmerHale) revealed its co-managing partners for a three-year term effective  January 1, 2012. The law firm named Susan W. Murley and Robert T. Novick as the new co-managing partners replacing William Perlstein and William Lee, who have been co-managing partners of WilmerHale since 2004. Murley and Novick will work closely with the firm’s current co-managing partners to ensure a seamless transition next year.

Lee said that he is happy with the recent development in their firm. “Susan and Bob 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.”

Murley, Boston-based, joined Hale and Dorr in 1986 after graduating from the University Of Virginia School Of Law. She became the chair of the firm’s corporate department in 1994 and the then chair of the transactional department in 2008. Meanwhile, Washington D.C.-based Novick graduated from the Washington College of Law at American University in 1983 and joined Wilmer Cutler as a partner in 2001, after four years of service as counselor and then general counsel in the Office of the US Trade Representative.
