Coinbase to work with former Google senior lawyer

Coinbase reveals that Googles past dominant lawyer has left the tech giant to lock in a deal. Milana McCullagh is now the online association’s deputy general counsel where she is concerned with the law of all their products.

Miss McCullagh, initially, partnered with the search company for over a decade but is now assisting Coinbase to coordinate regulatory compliance across everything. The digital organisation has been hoping to draw in more lawyers since 2019 to encourage them to go crypto.

The inflow of recruits could be due to investors holding regulation woes about an initial public offering (IPO). Lawyers were having conversations about the IPO with the crypto company and banks since early 2020.

Scrutiny

The organization synchronized recruits with their choice to avoid talking about politics and society at work which led to 60 workers exiting it. The CEO Brian Armstrong had posted an anti-politics blog post which came out on the 27th of October 2020 which resulted in Coinbase losing quality employee.

The organization may fear experiencing any backlash as recently there has been a lot of scrutiny on tech companies. For example, Mr Brad Garlinghouse decided to take action against YouTube for not protecting its consumers from scammers with fraudulent accounts that led to them losing thousands in XRP.

The firms that have joined

Since, August the digital company has also worked with Katherine Minarik, Dyson Ltd’s former general counsel. Miss. Minarik was the deputy counsel for litigation as well as, Uber Technologies inc’s previous senior legal.

They also appointed, Carly Nuzbach Lowery as commercial counsel. Miss. Nuzbach used to be an attorney at Fenwick Jade Clemons.

Janice Payne is now the director of regulatory compliance. Her former role was at CLS Group Holdings AG,  where she was head of supervisory affairs.
