Indianapolis-based Krieg DeVault LLP has named Mike Messaglia managing partner. He succeeds Deborah Daniels, who will remain a partner with the firm. Messaglia is a corporate and banking attorney who recently served as lead counsel to Evansville-based Old National Bancorp (NYSE: ONB) during its $300 million acquisition of Anchor Bancorp Inc. in Minnesota and as issuer's counsel to Carmel-based Merchants Bancorp (Nasdaq: MBIN) during its initial public offering.

The firm says Messaglia has been part of some of its "largest and most notable merger and acquisition transactions involving both public and private companies." He was first hired by Krieg DeVault as an associate in 1993.

"I am humbled to be elected by my Partners to serve as Managing Partner of this great law firm. I remain dedicated to the firm's long-standing commitment to our clients, colleagues and communities we serve," Messaglia says. "I welcome both the challenge and privilege of leading our esteemed law firm and to use the same founding principles that have been our foundation for more than 140 years."

Daniels authored a report in 2017 for Indianapolis-based USA Gymnastics that recommended multiple improvements for the protection of athletes. The firm says her new efforts will focus "significantly" on sexual harassment and sexual abuse internal investigations and policy formation. She says "it has been my honor to have led Krieg DeVault for the past 3 years. I am very pleased with the election of Mike Messaglia, whose leadership abilities, impressive financial background and commitment to Krieg DeVault make him a natural fit for the continued growth and success of our firm."
