Tesla Inc. drove off with a new general counsel Wednesday, promoting its vice president of legal, Jonathan Chang, to the top lawyer role to replace a D.C. litigator who only held the position for two months.

Chang joined Palo Alto-based Tesla as senior counsel in 2011. He’s worked his way up the legal department, most recently managing Tesla’s corporate securities, mergers and acquisitions, real estate, compliance, and sales and distribution functions in the U.S. and Europe. He’ll now lead Tesla’s global legal and policy teams and report to Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk.
