The Internet makes lives better, around the world, in ways people couldn't
have imagined not even a decade ago. It sparks prosperity, inspires
dissent, improves education, and encourages freedom. But all of the good
it does is under threat, largely from governments. He will discuss where
those threats are coming from, and the critical importance for us all that
we overcome them.
David Drummond joined Google in 2002, initially as vice president of
corporate development. Today as senior vice president and chief legal
officer, he leads Google’s global teams for legal, government relations,
corporate development (M&A and investment projects) and new business
development (strategic partnerships and licensing opportunities).
David was first introduced to Google in 1998 as a partner in the corporate
transactions group at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich and Rosati, one of the
nation’s leading law firms representing technology businesses. He served as
Google’s first outside counsel and worked with Larry Page and Sergey Brin
to incorporate the company and secure its initial rounds of financing.
During his tenure at Wilson Sonsini, David worked with a wide variety of
technology companies to help them manage complex transactions such as
mergers, acquisitions and initial public offerings.
