Angel joined DLA Piper to “drive some management and institutional change,” Meltzer said while also helping recruit new talent. He said this helped DLA Piper “move the brand upstream in a very difficult market.”

The two co-chairs leaving their posts will move into “important advisory roles,” according to the firm. It was not made clear if the co-chairs will be partners or not.



The firm also announced that it has two new global CEOs. They are Cameron Rains, who is a co-chair for the Americas, and Simon Levine. Levine is the co-managing director of groups and services for DLA Piper’s international business.
