Apple hires Charnas

Apple recently announced it has filled a position it has been lacking for years, as newly appointed general counsel Daniel Cooperman hired Charles Charnas, HP's lawyer of 18 years. According to AppleInsider, Charnas oversaw both the $4.5 billion acquisition of Mercury Interactive, as well as the purchase of Compaq for $25 billion. The hiring comes eight years after former attorney Michael Wyatt left Apple in 2000.

Charnas is allegedly a proud owner of an iPhone.
