Morgan Lewis appoints female MP

October 12, 2013 Philadelphia law firm Morgan Lewis & Bockius has appointed a new managing partner to replace the firm’s longstanding head Francis Milone. 

The firm elected litigation chief Jami McKeon to the top role, making her the first female managing partner in the firm’s history. She will take up her five-year term next October after a one-year transition.

Since joining the firm in 1981, McKeon has led teams in bank-related investigations and litigation, and was instrumental in growing the firm’s litigation practice in both London and Moscow.

“Our firm will be led by a partner who is full of compassion, good judgment, and wisdom, and we will be in good hands,” commented Milone. ”I look forward to working side by side with Jami as she transitions to the leadership of our firm.”
