Deval Patrick keeps the faith that companies slapped with huge race discrimination settlements can be reformed from within. He took this mission first to Texaco Inc. (now ChevronTexaco Corp.) and then to The Coca-Cola Co. as its GC in 2001.


Xerox Corp.’s Christina Clayton was one of several general counsel recognized by the Minority Corporate Counsel Association last year for supporting diversity in a corporate law department.

There’s no official registry, but Stuart Krinsly may well be the world’s oldest GC. For 37 of his 85 years, he’s been the top lawyer at aerospace and chemicals company Sequa Corp.

We had to turn to a former GC to find someone in truly peak condition. Raymond Ocampo Jr., who retired as Oracle Corp.’s GC in 1996, found time to compete in the 1988 Winter Olympics. OK, the event was men’s single luge — representing the Philippines (his native country) — but he has also run in over a dozen marathons.
