Dennis C. Garcia

Microsoft Corp
Assistant General Counsel
Chicago, IL, USA


As an Assistant General Counsel for Microsoft I practice at the intersection of law, technology and business and lead the legal support function to Microsoft's US Enterprise Commercial Sales team - a team of over 2000 sales professionals that drives Microsoft's largest commercial business with its biggest customers. I also have the privilege in leading a team of 14 outstanding and diverse lawyers and legal professionals who are scattered across the US. Prior to joining Microsoft I worked in various in-house legal roles for IBM and Accenture.

I have over 20 years of legal experience - all in-house with leading Information Technology providers. My primary expertise includes shaping and negotiating a wide range of sophisticated IT contracts with third parties such as Digital Transformation, Cloud Computing, Internet of Things, on-premises licensing, business process outsourcing, consulting services and product support arrangements. In addition, I have substantial expertise in the areas of cybersecurity, privacy, compliance & ethics, intellectual property, dispute resolution, employment law and antitrust law. 

I'm an enthusiastic user of social media and have a passion for improving diversity in the legal profession and leveraging technology to achieve more. I have spoken extensively at legal events/conferences on a variety of topics and I have had numerous articles published by third parties both in print media and online.
