DLA Piper has snagged five corporate and securities attorneys from Winston & Strawn, plus one each from Sidley Austin and Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal as part of a push to beef up its corporate and finance practice. Drew Chapman, who was formerly at Sonnenschein in New York, will become chair of DLA’s fund services group and continue his work with hedge fund, private-equity, hybrid fund and broker-dealer clients. Jack Kantrowitz comes to DLA from Sidley’s New York office where he was a corporate securities partner working with underwriters and issuers on corporate finance transactions. Both will work out of DLA’s New York office. The five new attorneys from Winston & Strawn, who will work out of the New York and Chicago offices, include Steven V. Napolitano, who will now be co-chair of DLA’s U.S. private equity group, and Richard E. Ginsberg, who will be co-chair of the U.S. fund formation group. Brendan P. Head, Christopher P. Giordano and Jason L. Booth will also join as partners. The lateral moves follow DLA’s hiring in February of Roger Meltzer from Cahill Gordon & Reindel and his commissioning as the global chair of the corporate and finance practice group to lead an “aggressive expansion” of that practice globally. DLA has about 800 attorneys in that group worldwide and has hired about 16 of them since Meltzer’s arrival. “Private equity plays an increasingly influential role in the global economy,” said George J. Mitchell, DLA’s chairman and a former Democratic U.S. senator from Maine, in a press release. “This addition is a tremendous boost to our private equity practice.” The firm, which was ranked as the second-largest in the country last year by the National Law Journal based on attorney headcount, has about 3,400 lawyers operating out of 64 offices in 25 countries.
