Former board member will lead legal efforts for domain investor organization.Just weeks after taking on a volunteer role as counsel to the Internet Commerce Association (ICA), attorney Zak Muscovitch has been hired as interim counsel.
Muscovitch will fill the void left by Phil Corwin. Corwin was counsel to the ICA since it was founded 11 years ago. He left earlier this month to join Verisign.
In making the appointment, the ICA stated:
Since the ICA has a full slate of pressing and time consuming matters to attend to immediately that requires the attention of a General Counsel and cannot be discharged in a very limited, voluntary capacity, the ICA Board has requested that Zak resign his Board position and assume the duties of Interim General Counsel for a six-month term on a part time and paid basis.
This move should give some continuity to the ICA’s legal work while giving the organization time to figure out what sort of legal resources it needs going forward.
