Midyear hiring still remained high in the fall as companies filled the roles vacated by general counsel and chief legal officers who had been promoted earlier this year to nonlegal C-suite positions.

Estée Lauder Cos. Inc. named Deirdre Stanley, a veteran Thomson Reuters attorney, executive vice president and general counsel to replace Sara Moss, who was promoted to vice chairman in July. Nasdaq Inc. also gave Edward Knight, its executive vice president and global chief legal and policy officer, the position of vice chairman. Taking over the legal department as chief legal officer is John Zecca, who joined Nasdaq in 2001. Entertainment Software Association announced Covington & Burling attorney Gina Vetere will be its new general counsel after former general counsel Stanley Pierre-Louis became permanent CEO in May after filling the interim CEO role since last October.
