The first 100 days of a new GC’s tenure is typically a period marked by a fresh start, a bit of a honeymoon to get settled in, and optimism about the future.
Last week, fresh off the announcement of the iPhone, Apple CEO Steven Jobs made another command performance. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Mr. Jobs appeared (with lawyers in tow) at federal offices to talk with DOJ and SEC investigators about past stock option practices.
Quite a first 60 days for Mr. Rosenberg, given the part of the alleged focus of the government investigation: the Apple legal department. No doubt the last 40 days of Mr. Rosenberg’s fresh start will require a lot of hard work and demand no small amount of leadership.
No sign yet that changes at the US Attorney’s office in San Francisco detailed by The Recorder are slowing down the government’s investigation.
