Copy (in postfunction) the assignee to another customfield ("Previuos Assignee") before you assign it to lead developer. On the next transition copy that field ("Previuos Assignee") again into assignee field.

yes, I do the same as it changes hands multiple times but want it possible to pass it back to the last owner if there are issues.

I assume, customfield option appears when JIRA Suite Utilities plugin is installed? Because I don't see such thing in my postfunctions
