Uber Looking for New General Counsel Amid Increasingly Dicey Legal Issues
A company email indicates that CEO Travis Kalanick said he plans to search for an external hire to fill the role. The general counsel search started after Uber moved its longtime general counsel, Salle Yoo, to chief legal officer.
Uber is facing a federal Department of Justice probe as well as a major lawsuit from Alphabet.
“Given Uber’s myriad of thorny legal issues, along with an ongoing investigation into allegations of pervasive sexism and sexual harassment, that search should be an interesting one for the company to conduct,” writes Bhuyan.
