Oracle Corporation has used the services of Dewey & LeBoeuf as its lead outside counsel in its purchase of software firm Taleo.

The in-house team was led by Brian Higgins and E.B. McCusker.

Oracle has also purchased several other tech firms in the last two years, including RightNow Technologies in October 2011 for $1.5 billion. For that deal, the firm used the services of Latham & Watkins. Taleo used the services of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati . The law firm has been advising Taleo ever since it was incorporated in 1999, including in its IPO in 2005.
