An impassioned, tenacious, highly-respected thinker and doer in the legal world and way beyond, Megan Gray brings an impressive and surely unique set of skills and experience of proven value not only to NPAFE but to the many people around the world whom she has touched — and still does — with her thoughts, words and deeds.
A graduate of the University of Texas (BA), the University’s LBJ School of Public Affairs (Masters cum laude), and the University of Texas School of Law (JD, cum laude), Megan has worked at major law firms in a broad array of professional settings, including O’Melveny & Myers LLP and Baker & Hostetler. She has run her own firm, Gray Matters, and serves as an active American Bar Association member in key functional areas including Consumer Protection Law.
Currently a senior professional at the Federal Trade Commission’s Bureau of Consumer Protection – Division of Enforcement and a Fellow at the Stanford Law School, Center for Internet and Society, Megan has a broad professional audience of people with and for whom she has worked and collaborated. They mince few words about what they think of her, to wit these comments excerpted from Megan’s LinkedIn profile:
“Megan has played several pivotal roles: manager and mentor, colleague, outside counsel and friend … has inspired me to bring my A game every day and never settle for second best. She is a dedicated advocate – resourceful, creative and well-connected. She speaks both “lawyer” and “client” fluently and … creates tremendous value, always with a practical eye on the bottom line.
“I have always been impressed with Megan’s intellect, legal background and communication skills. She is one of the best writers that I have come across in my 25 years in this business.”
“Megan is one of the nation’s experts on First Amendment law and the Internet. She was a pioneer in this field as it emerged and has remained at the top of the game in the fields of privacy, trademarks and other areas.”
“She is unfailingly honest, even when the facts were unfavorable, and she never gave up, always thinking ahead and always willing to engage with any office or opportunity.”
“Megan is an exceptional transactional lawyer. She is so good, that I engaged her services for 3 different companies I worked for in the technology space – content provider, ecommerce and mobile apps. She gives great advice that is practical and business sound. Megan approaches her role with a get the deal done attitude offering creative solutions to provide a win/win for both sides, and most importantly a win for her client.”
What’s not to like about all that!!! Especially when it comes along with Megan’s unfailing smile, good will, and an unbeatable sense of humor. (back to Team page)
