Daniel C. Tepstein is chief litigation counsel for Oath, a Verizon company that owns and operates Yahoo, AOL, Tumblr and HuffPost, among other leading online brands. He previously served as vice president and associate general counsel for Yahoo! Inc., where he was responsible for managing the company’s non-patent litigation portfolio and risk globally.

With more than two decades of litigation experience, Tepstein has litigated or overseen the prosecution and defense of hundreds of significant disputes — several of which were matters of first impression that shaped the law for Internet service providers, users, advertisers and publishers. Prior to joining Yahoo in 2007, he was a partner at Hunton & Williams LLP, and before that at O’Donnell & Shaeffer LLP, in Los Angeles.

Tepstein graduated cum laude from Southwestern University School of Law, where he was editor-in-chief of the Southwestern Law Review and served as an extern for the Honorable Arthur L. Alarcón, senior circuit judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. He completed his undergraduate studies at Loyola Marymount University.
