On the heels of its blockbuster initial public offering, the most successful of the year so far, Beyond Meat has named a new top lawyer.

The El Segundo, California, plant-based meat producer announced Monday it has named Teri Witteman as general counsel and secretary, effective immediately. Witteman joins Beyond Meat from the Los Angeles office of Musick, Peeler & Garrett, where she was a partner specializing in U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission compliance, corporate governance and mergers and acquisitions, according to a news release announcing her hire.
