In electing a new leader, Montgomery McCracken Walker & Rhoads has tapped a lawyer who left the firm and decided to come back as a lateral three years ago.

Richard Simins has been elected chairman of the Philadelphia-based midsize firm, effective Thursday. He takes over for Louis Petroni, who has been chairman of the firm since 2016.

The firm also elected two partners as new management committee members—labor and employment vice chair William Kennedy and intellectual property department chair Alfred Zaher. They join existing committee members Petroni and Simins, as well as Frank Chernak, Steven Pachman, John Papianou, Richard Placey and Paul Zoubek.
