MINNEAPOLIS, MN—The law firm of Maslon LLP is pleased to announce that its partnership has elected new members of its board of directors.

Partner Keiko Sugisaka was re-elected board chair this week after serving as the firm’s top leader since January 2022. Partner and Board Member David Suchar was elected vice chair. Newly elected to serve two-year terms are partners Brian Klein and Julian Zebot. The remaining partner board member is Susan Link, who was elected with David Suchar in September 2022 when the firm expanded its governing body from three partners to five.

The board consists of five partners and the chief operating officer, who are responsible for strategy, policymaking, and oversight of the firm through the executive committee. The executive committee consists of two partner board members, Sugisaka and Suchar, and Chief Operating Officer Suzette Allaire. It is charged with making day-to-day operational and management decisions.

Maslon offered its gratitude to partner and former Vice Chair Michael McCarthy for his eight and a half years of firm management, including as firm chair, and to Partner Shauro Bagchi for his dedicated service on the board, as well as on the previous governance committee.
