Q: Tell me about the legal department at Bristol-Myers Squibb.

A: We have about 110 attorneys and a number of support staff. I also have the environmental health and safety group, as well as corporate security, reporting to me in the law department. We have lawyers all over the world. I have regulatory, commercial, intellectual property, trademark, M&A, securities and transactions lawyers—it’s a fairly large, highly talented and skilled group.
