Episode Notes

Last year, Google bought Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion. As usually happens in such a merger, the law department went though a significant re-organization. Of the law department’s 250 people, 150 departed post-merger — some to Google headquarters in Mountain View, Calif., others left the company. The MM law department took Google’s instructions to better use technology to heart, and not only “ate the dog food,” (i.e., used Google technology) but became a “skunkworks” operation — actually developing new technology tools and apps to help the legal team streamline processes and deliver faster, better, cheaper, and transparent legal services.

Law Technology Now host Monica Bay, an attorney and editor-in-chief of ALM’s Law Technology News, interviews David Kenzer, Motorola’s vice president of law, and Elizabeth Jaworksi, director of legal operations, about how the MM law department embraced Google’s culture.
