Rimini Street Appoints Daniel B. Winslow as General Counsel
Accomplished 30-Year Attorney and Former State Representative, Judge and Chief Legal Counsel to then-Gov. Mitt Romney Joins Leading Enterprise Software Support Company
LAS VEGAS, September 16, 2013 - Rimini Street, Inc., the leading third-party maintenance and support provider for enterprise software, including SAP AG's (NYSE:SAP) Business Suite and BusinessObjects software and Oracle Corporation's (NYSE:ORCL) Siebel, PeopleSoft, JD Edwards, E-Business Suite, Oracle Database and Hyperion software, today announced the appointment of Daniel B. Winslow as Senior Vice President and General Counsel. The general counsel position is new for Rimini Street, and is now appropriate given the Company's size, fast-paced growth and global operations. In this role, Winslow will lead Rimini Street's global legal team and provide legal support to the board of directors and all global business units. Winslow, who has served as a member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives since 2011, resigned from the House to accept the new general counsel position at Rimini Street. Winslow also resigned his position at the international law firm of Duane Morris LLP, where he served of counsel assisting corporate clients in a wide variety of areas, including patent prosecution and litigation, trademark and copyright, regulatory compliance, telecommunications, investment banking, and internet and entertainment law.
Prior to Duane Morris, Winslow was Chief Legal Counsel to then-Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, overseeing a team of more than 800 in-house and outside counsel, the largest legal practice in Massachusetts. Previously, he spent eight years as a presiding justice and appellate division justice in the Massachusetts Trial Court.
With more than 30 years of experience as a trial lawyer, Winslow's trial experience encompasses complex cases, including intellectual property, alternative resolution of commercial disputes, state and federal administrative law, corporate compliance, consumer protection, products liability, and procurement.
Winslow has been cited by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly newspaper as one of the 35 most influential lawyers in Massachusetts in the past 35 years. Recognized as a Super Lawyer in Massachusetts by Law & Politics magazine, Winslow also has been named one of the nation's Top 500 Trial Lawyers by Lawdragon Magazine.
Winslow received his B.A. from Tufts University magna cum laude with special honors and graduated from Boston College Law School cum laude.
