Former Apple and Oracle general counsel Daniel Cooperman is rejoining Bingham McCutchen’s Silicon Valley office. Cooperman previously served as managing partner of the firm’s San Jose office (then known as McCutchen Doyle Brown & Enersen) before leaving to be in-house counsel at Oracle.

The Wall Street Journal Digits blog reports Cooperman intends to focus on “corporate and transactional matters,” but his main job will be educating the firm on the pressures that face general counsels of major corporations. He told the blog the speed and urgency associated with corporate operations is “really just crazy.”

“They move from one matter to the next in alarming, breathtaking speed. You don’t have a great deal of mindshare,” Cooperman said.


Cooperman expects to represent multinational corporations and private companies in merger and acquisition deals. He added he hopes to help the firm “better anticipate its client’s needs.”

Between Apple and Oracle, Cooperman spent 13 years as a general counsel. When he left Apple in September, the company said he was retiring, but Cooperman indicated he simply needed a break from the high-intensity position.

“It’s an extreme amount of responsibility and accountability and you need to be available fully 24 hours a day. After all that time, I really wanted a bit of sabbatical,” he said.
