Longtime Oracle General Counsel Dorian Daley to Retire

Longtime Oracle general counsel Dorian Daley will retire in August after 30 years at the data management software company. Daley has been executive vice president, general counsel and secretary of Oracle since 2007. She joined the legal department at the software company in 1992, and has held various roles since, including associate general counsel, assistant secretary and vice president of legal.

Daley will help the company transition her duties until her retirement. Oracle, who has moved its headquarters from Silicon Valley to Austin in 2020, has 143,000 employees and annual revenue topping $42 billion.

Daley is one of Oracle’s highest-paid executives. In the fiscal year that ended in May 2021, she earned $11.3 million, up from $10.1 million a year earlier.

Daley has overseen a number of high-profile lawsuits on behalf of Oracle during her tenure, including a copyright infringement lawsuit alleging Google plagiarized Oracle’s Java software to create Android.
