O’Melveny’s Danielle Gray Profiled as a Woman Worth Watching in Diversity JournalAugust 14, 2015 Profiles in Diversity Journal's August edition highlighted O’Melveny & Myers’ Danielle Gray as a 2015 Woman Worth Watching. The special report detailed Gray’s return to O’Melveny after several years in the Obama Administration, where she held a number of senior legal and policy roles, most recently as President Obama’s chief liaison to his cabinet. That experience gave Gray a valuable set of skills to advise business leaders on critical issues, including cybersecurity and compliance with the Affordable Care Act. The article also mentioned her recent role as a lead member of an O’Melveny team that conducted a high-profile investigation and review of allegations of sexual violence at the University of Virginia, following a Rolling Stone article that reported alleged sexual abuse on campus. In the article, Gray said, “I think the one piece of career advice I’d give my former self is that plans are overrated.”
Gray is a litigation partner in O’Melveny’s New York and Washington, DC offices, a member of the Financial Services and White Collar and Corporate Investigations Practices, and a founding member of the Firm’s Data Security and Privacy Practice, where she advises companies on cyber risk-management, governance, and incident response.
