The paper is concerned with Galerkin finite element solutions of parabolic equations in a convex polygon or polyhedron with a diffusion coefficient in $W^{1,N+\alpha }$ for some $\alpha >0$, where $N$ denotes the dimension of the domain. We prove the analyticity of the semigroup generated by the discrete elliptic operator, the discrete maximal $L^p$ regularity and the optimal $L^p$ error estimate of the finite element solution for the parabolic equation.
