    Southwest Airlines Co. says its general counsel will retire Feb. 1 and be replaced by another lawyer for the Dallas carrier.

    Madeleine Johnson, who's 58, joined Southwest in 2008 after serving as the Dallas city attorney and as a federal prosecutor in Texas. She also holds the title of vice president.

    Johnson will be succeeded by Mark Shaw. The 49-year-old Shaw is the airline's associate general counsel for corporate and transactions matters.

    Shaw joined Dallas-based Southwest in 2000 after working for the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld LLP.
