Daniel Masur is taking over the leadership slot of Mayer Brown's office in Washington, the firm said today.
Masur, who joined Mayer Brown in 1997, will succeed Michael Lackey, Jr. as the head of the firm's third-largest office in the United States. (Mayer Brown, based in Chicago, has 146 attorneys in Washington.)
The firm recently named Lackey a co-leader of the litigation and dispute resolution practice. Lackey had been the partner-in-charge of the Washington office since January 2012.
