Apple hires Katherine Adams as general counsel to replace retiring Bruce Sewell







Seung LeeOctober 6, 2017 at 9:46 AM
With Bruce Sewell set to retire by the end of the year, Apple has hired Katherine Adams as general counsel and senior vice president of Legal and Global Security.

Adams was general counsel at Honeywell, the New Jersey-based conglomerate whose companies span aerospace, construction and materials technologies, from 2008 to 2017.

“Apple has had a tremendous impact on the world and it’s an honor to join their team,” said Adams in a company post. “I’m excited to help Apple continue to grow and evolve around the world, protecting their ideas and IP, and defending our shared values.”

Before joining Honeywell, Adams was a partner at Sidley Austin Brown & Wood LLP in New York City. She also worked as a law clerk for former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor and attorney for the United States Department of Justice. She clerked for Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, who then was chief judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit.

Adams will be reporting directly to Apple CEO Tim Cook.

“We are thrilled to welcome Kate to our team,” said Cook. “She’s a seasoned leader with outstanding judgment and that has worked on a wide variety of legal cases globally. Throughout her career she’s also been an advocate on many of the values we at Apple hold dear.”

Adams will replace Sewell, who has been with the Cupertino tech giant since 2009. Sewell joined Apple from Intel.

“To have worked with this amazing executive team and all the incredibly smart people at Apple, especially my colleagues in legal and global security, has been the honor of a lifetime,” said Sewell. “The years I have spent in this job have been the most gratifying of my career. I’m delighted Kate is joining and I know she will be a huge asset.”

Sewell has been at the forefront of many of Apple’s biggest legal cases. After the San Bernardino mass shooting, Sewell testified on behalf of Apple to Congress last year about encryption because Apple would not unlock the iPhone of the shooter for the FBI.

Through Sewell, Apple has been fighting legal battles with Samsung and Qualcomm. For the former, the five-year-long lawsuit was over design patent infringements over smartphones and tablets. For the latter, Apple sued Qualcomm after accusing it of running an extortion scheme over its smartphone royalties in January and cut off payments three months later. In July, Qualcomm sued back, claiming copyright infringement.

Apple v. Qualcomm is expected to go to trial in San Diego next year, meaning it will be Adams, not Sewell, who will be leading the charge.

Sewell’s Bloomberg interview was back in August and it just “saw the light of day” this week... and **bingo** Sewell remarkably departs. A coincidence.... I think not.

I found the interview odd and out of character but the fact is that this case is isnt as big a deal to Apple as it is to Qualcomm. I have my doubts that missteps in an interview on this case would get him thrown out.

Who knows though? Both sides have now changed out their top lawyers so maybe a fresh set of eyes on both sides figures out a path out of this mess.
