Oracle is on the hunt for a new top lawyer as veteran general counsel Dorian Daley plans her impending retirement. Daley will support the company as it transitions her role to a new legal leader—at least until her retirement becomes effective. She began her career with Oracle in 1992, making her a three-decade veteran of the company who also served as an executive vice president for several years.
As a longtime employee of the Oracle legal department, Daley has long been a supporter of increasing diversity and inclusion in the legal profession. Led by eclectic chairman, chief technology officer, and founder Larry Ellison, the tech giant has seen its fair share of accusations of pay inequity and discrimination against women and minorities. Daley, along with her legal team of roughly 500, oversaw a successful defense against a pay bias lawsuit filed by the U.S. Department of Labor. She also led a copyright battle with Alphabet that was ultimately decided against Oracle by the U.S. Supreme Court.
