GM legal department could be getting ‘overhauled’ as company continues to announce recalls

Even more recalls are possible at GM in a year of recalls, as the company has to worry about the future of its brand and pending lawsuits

With General Motors breaking records for the number of recalled vehicles in a single year, news reports are suggesting that GM’s legal department is getting its own “overhaul.”

Bloomberg News reported on Wednesday that GM general counsel Michael Millikin named a “legal adviser to work with the heads of global safety and vehicle development so information about defects is shared more quickly between departments.” Additional changes are likely in the legal department after an internal investigation is finished, the report adds.
