Tesla boosts its legal team by hiring top securities lawyer
Tesla’s legal team received a boost last month, with the company hiring Derek Windham, a top securities lawyer, as its senior director and deputy general counsel for corporate and securities. Prior to his employment at Tesla, Windham had worked at Hewlett Packard Enterprise Co. (HP) for seven years.
Not long after, Tesla hired Michael Munro as its new Associate General Counsel, Global Compliance. Munro is a longtime oil and gas industry lawyer and former partner at Norton Rose Fulbright. James Wu also joined in May as the company’s managing counsel for employment class action litigation. Wu previously worked as the chair of Quarles & Brady’s California labor and employment practice, according to Bloomberg Law.
