Fox Corporation has expanded the role of executive vice president and associate general counsel Elizabeth Casey to make her a senior member of the company’s litigation and intellectual property groups.
She now reports to executive vice president and chief litigation counsel Jeff Taylor and also continues to lead the standards and practices department for Fox’s national networks and the legal team that supports Fox’s advertising sales function.
Casey joined Fox in 1999 as vice president of litigation. In that role she was charged with overseeing litigation matters for various Fox companies, including Fox television stations. She had previously been a partner with law firm Troop Meisinger Steuber & Pasich, representing financial institutions and entertainment studios in complex civil litigation.
‘Elizabeth’s astute legal mind, litigation experience, sound judgment and deep knowledge of our company make her the ideal person to assume this executive role within the litigation group,’ Taylor says in a statement. ‘She has long been an invaluable part of the legal function at Fox, and I look forward to working with her even more closely in this expanded role.’
Fox Corporation earlier this year hired Jeff Taylor as executive vice president and chief litigation counsel, reporting to chief legal and policy officer Viet Dinh. Taylor was brought on board to oversee litigation, labor and employment matters, content protection and compliance for all of Fox’s operations, including the Fox Network, Fox Sports, FS1, FS2, Fox Deportes, Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, Fox Television Stations and its multi-platform assets.
Fox was spun off in connection with the Walt Disney Company’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox and became a stand-alone company on March 19 of this year.
