Roger Meltzer, a Cahill Gordon & Reindell partner and leading M&A lawyer with an estimated $20 million book of business, is joining DLA Piper to become the head of corporate finance, DLA Chairman Frank Burch confirmed Monday. Cahill, a 242-lawyer Wall Street firm, rarely loses partners to anything but retirement. Meltzer said the move was about finding new challenges, and should not be seen as a sign that anything is wrong at his old firm: "Cahill is a jewel," he said. "I wanted to do something else."
