Twitter Reportedly Dismissed Musk’s Personal Lawyer

After taking control of Twitter, Musk fired both Twitter’s chief legal officer and general counsel within hours of closing his acquisition and appointed his personal lawyer, Alex Spiro, to head the legal and policy matters at Twitter. As per sources, Mr Spiro – a noted criminal defence lawyer who successfully defended the billionaire in a high-profile defamation case – is not working with Twitter anymore as Musk was unhappy with most of his decisions; one of the decisions among these was his call to retain the Twitter deputy general counsel, James A. Baker. To fill the void, Musk has brought in more than half a dozen lawyers from his space exploration company.
