Senior Vice President and General Counsel
Creative, Pragmatic Business Partner
Since joining Polycom in 2005, Mike Mills has been a critical part of the delivery of customer-focused collaboration solutions. As Senior Vice President and General Counsel, Mike oversees the company’s legal teams responsible for strategic transactions, corporate governance and compliance, litigation, regulatory matters, intellectual property and branding, employment-related matters, corporate policies, and general corporate and commercial contracts.
Mike's perspective is that the role of Legal, consistent with the mandate of the business, is to deliver the best solutions for our customers and to solve their problems. Polycom’s Legal department is in a unique position to fulfill that mandate given its deep legal knowledge and analytical training, vast transactional experience and increased visibility and experience related to all aspects of the business. This, combined with Polycom’s world-class legal team, translates into a pragmatic solutions-oriented department that works in concert with the rest of the company to create value for our customers.
In his career, Mike has served in senior positions at Omnicell and Commerce One. He was also an associate in the law firm of Latham & Watkins.
Mike is a graduate of Cornell University School of Law, with a Juris Doctorate, and holds a bachelor of arts, with honors, in political science from the University of California at San Diego.
