Uber then-General Counsel prioritized solving business problems over legal problems

In a 30 minute podcast on Legal Talk Network, Uber then-General Counsel Salle Yoo remarked:

I tell my team, “We’re not here to solve legal problems. We’re here to solve business problems. Legal is our tool.”

She continued: “I am going to be supportive of innovation” — broadly indicating prioritizing innovation ahead of compliance with the law.
