Disruption as usual - on the 'bleeding edge' at Google with the world's fastest-moving legal team
Spend time with the energetic crew at Google, and the word “disrupt” comes up a lot. Google’s businesses tend to do that to the traditional marketplace, and Googlers (as they call themselves) make no apologies. In fact, they use the word with pride – sounding like 1960s protesters determined to shake the establishment. The company’s lawyers often find themselves in the thick of it – before, during, and after “disruptions”. And you might expect them to sound a little upset, since they have to deal with the sometimes messy consequences. But they, too, seem to relish rattling the barricades.
Win or lose, Google’s staff is taking the law and legal departments where they haven’t gone before. David Hechler reports
