Facebook Hires General Counsel

Lora Bentley

Yesterday, we reported that social networking site Facebook has hired a new general counsel. Ted Ulyot, a partner in the firm of Kirkland & Ellis, has served as general counsel for AOL Time Warner and held several positions with the federal government.


Ulyot's focus will be growing the company's now 10-member legal team to handle the plethora of legal issues that can crop up, both in a young corporation and in the ever-evolving space that is social networking. Privacy and intellectual property issues are high on the priority list.
