More 'Legal Issues' at Vonage

12:15 PM -- Vonage Holdings Corp. (NYSE: VG)'s Chief Legal Officer Sharon O'Leary saw her name in the news a lot over the past year. The company probably would have preferred we didn't know her name at all.

O'Leary, of course, was Vonage's General Counsel during its endless onslaught of patent infringement cases from the likes of Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ), AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T), and Sprint Corp. (NYSE: S). Now O'Leary will be departing the company at the end of March. (See Vonage Announces Personnel Changes.)

Don't blame her if she was feeling a bit burned out. Or maybe she got a job offer from a bigger company that needed her experience defending against Verizon. (See Verizon Sues Cox.)
