On Thursday, global law firm DLA Piper announced it had taken on a team of 27 private equity lawyers from Detroit-based firm Honigman. 

The hiring spree will substantially boost DLA Piper’s Chicago team of middle-market private equity attorneys. The hires include managing partner of Honigman’s city office, Harris Eisenberg, as well as co-leader of Honigman’s private equity practice, Alex Plakas.  

The firm developed and is implementing a focused strategic plan, and private equity is a primary part of the plan. We strongly believe middle-market private equity represents a tremendous opportunity for the firm and our focus is to continue growing our PE practice in Chicago, other major markets in the US and around the world. This premier group, led by Harris and Alex, exemplifies what we’re looking for: top-notch practitioners who are difference makers in major markets,” said Joe Alexander, DLA Piper’s US vice chairman.

Meanwhile, Harris Eisenberg commented, “On behalf of our team, I want to say how excited we are to join DLA Piper’s highly-respected team of talented dealmakers. We have long admired DLA Piper’s private equity platform and look forward to bringing together our extensive private equity experience and ability to deliver innovative solutions for our clients.
