DLA Piper has added five restructuring partners to its Chicago office from Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker, including the founder and former chairman of Paul Hasting’s Chicago location. Richard Chesley joins DLA Piper, along with Stacey Kern, Gregory Otsuka, Kimberly Newmarch and Ameer Ahmad. Chesley has served as restructuring counsel for Kaiser Aluminum Corp., Federated Department Stores, Purina Mills LLC and Elder-Beerman Stores Corp. He moved to Paul Hastings in 2006 from Jones Day to open its Chicago office. That office had 44 attorneys prior to the departure of Chesley’s group, according to The NLJ 250, The National Law Journal‘s annual ranking of the nation’s largest law firms. Chesley said the “reach and breadth” of DLA Piper prompted his move. “They’ve got offices in more places than I can name,” Chesley said. In December, DLA Piper’s Chicago office added three private equity partners from Mayer Brown, bringing the total number of attorneys at that location to 215. DLA Piper has about 3,500 attorneys in 69 offices throughout 30 countries. Contact Leigh Jones at [email protected].
