DLA Piper appoints Dr Benjamin Parameswaran as new global co-chair for corporate practice

DLA Piper has appointed Germany-based partner Benjamin Parameswaran as global co-chair for the corporate practice. He succeeds London-based partner Bob Bishop, who is stepping away from this position on 31 October 2022 after eight years in this role.

Parameswaran has been a core part of the corporate team since he joined the firm in 2010. He is one of the group´s most active M&A partners and leads some of the firm´s most valuable global client relationships.

 He has demonstrated his management and leadership skills as country managing partner for Germany for the past eight years. During this time, he helped to establish DLA Piper as a leading practice in one of Europe’s most competitive legal markets.

Bishop took on the role as global co-chair in 2014 and under his leadership the practice has gone from strength to strength.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Bob for the outstanding contribution he has made in building the world-class corporate practice we have today,” said Simon Levine, global Co-CEO at DLA Piper.

“And I would like to thank Ben for his fantastic leadership as a country managing partner for Germany for the past eight years and for having made DLA Piper a leading player in the German market and I have no doubt that Ben will lead the corporate practice group very successfully in the future”, he added.
