According to Reuters, RIM’s Chief Legal Officer, Karima Bawa announced her resignation Monday, May 28. This is the second announcement of its kind in as many weeks.
Bawa helped defend numerous patents and craft many commercial deals for RIM over the last 12 years. According to a statement from RIM, Bawa will remain with the company while a replacement is hired and during a transition period. There was a least one report that indicated Bawa is retiring rather than resigning. Since she is staying on a while, the retirement report may align more closely with her design.
