After nearly two decades, midsize California firm Hanson Bridgett has a new managing partner, who will be its first female leader. And it’s bringing a relatively new voice into the role, selecting a partner who joined the firm as a lateral hire in 2017.

The firm has elected Kristina Lawson, leader of its real estate and environment section, as the new managing partner, Hanson Bridgett announced Thursday. She will take over for longtime managing partner Andrew Giacomini, who has led the firm since 2002, and will be the first woman to lead the 60-year-old firm.
