Jamie Greenberg


General Counsel


Jamie has led the legal function at Wattpad, the world’s largest reading and writing platform, for the past four years, navigating the complex journey from start up to scale up through to one of the most successful acquisitions ($800m+ CAD) in Canadian tech history. Wattpad was a VC backed startup (Khosla, USV, OMERS, Tencent) that was acquired in 2021 by Naver Corp. of South Korea, and currently operates as a subsidiary of Naver and WEBTOON.

Jamie leads a team of lawyers and experts who manage the complex legal, IP, privacy, HR and policy issues of a 90+ million person user generated content platform. He collaborates cross functionally across the company and the wider Naver and WEBTOON group of companies to implement best practices and execute on strategy. Jamie sits on the Leadership Team.

Prior to Wattpad Jamie worked in media at Facet4, telecom at Public Mobile (acquired by TELUS) and started his career at the Canadian broadcast and telecom regulator, the CRTC. Jamie has been involved in many of the largest private market TMT deals in Canada, both working in-house and in government.

Jamie holds a JD from Osgoode Hall Law School, a BA (Jt. Hons) from McGill and is called to the Bar of Ontario. In 2022, Jamie was recognized by Lexpert as a Rising Star and Leading Lawyer Under 40. In 2023, Wattpad’s law department was named as an Excellence Awardee in two categories at the Canadian Law Awards; The Canadian Legal Department of the Year and the Law Department Innovation Award and it was also named a finalist at the Canadian General Counsel Awards for the Baker Mckenzie Innovation Award.
