David Kris joins Intellectual Ventures as GC

Of Kris joing IV, TechFlash includes the following:

In a blog post, Intellectual Ventures' President and COO Adriane Brown said that Kris brings nearly 20 years of legal experience to the company. Here's more:

He has expertise in assessing legal risk while also taking into account operational efficiency. In between positions at the US Department of Justice, David served as Deputy General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer for Time Warner where he developed an enterprise-wide ethics and compliance program for offices in more than 50 countries and provided counsel to executives regarding corporate legal risk and compliance. With David’s experience, intellect and engaging personality, I’m certain he will effectively step into the role of General Counsel and lead our well-established legal department. David is well known for his ability to assess a situation from all angles and make decisions that bridge the gap between theory and practice. He is a strong leader, a bright lawyer and a great addition to the company.

Kris replaces Greg Landis, who is leaving the company to work with non-profits and other public service organizations.
