Polsinelli has named Jane E. Arnold co-chair of the firm’s national business department.
Arnold, who is currently the managing partner of the firm’s St. Louis office, will share the duties of her new role with Kolin Holladay, a shareholder in the firm’s Nashville office. With Arnold’s appointment, half of Polsinelli’s department chairs are women.
Arnold has broad experience in mergers and acquisitions, representing private equity sponsors, strategic purchasers and sellers across diverse industries with a primary focus on health care industry transactions. She also leads the firm’s national Women’s Empowerment Committee.
The firm also named two other St. Louis shareholders to key leadership changes within its health care transactions space. St. Louis shareholder Margaret H. Hillman was named to succeed Arnold as chair of Polsinelli’s national health care alignment and organization practice, which is focused on representing health care providers in strategic transactions including mergers and acquisitions as well as structuring clinically aligned networks. And Andrew J. Voss was named co-chair of the firm’s national health care mergers and acquisitions practice, a position Arnold previously held.
“I am proud to be among the outstanding leaders at Polsinelli, and I look forward to working with Kolin to lead our talented team forward,” Arnold said. “This is an exciting time for the firm as we build on an incredibly strong foundation. I am also extremely pleased to have Margaret and Andy assume their challenging new roles. Their appointments continue the strong tradition of leadership by St. Louis lawyers of our national firm.”
