In its August 11, 2016, issue, The American Bazaar reported that Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser appointed O’Melveny alum Ronak Desai to her commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
“Desai is a recognized legal and foreign policy expert and currently serves as Counsel to the US Congress,” American Bazaar noted in its story. “Prior to his tenure on Capitol Hill, Desai worked as an attorney at the powerhouse law firm O’Melveny & Myers LLP.”
The publication went on to point out that during his tenure at O’Melveny, Desai was recognized by the Washington, DC pro bono bar for “the thousands of hours of free legal services he provided to indigent clients across the country.”
