O’Melveny’s Gray Featured in Forbes.com Q&ASeptember 30, 2015
O’Melveny & Myers partner Danielle C. Gray, formerly a senior advisor to US President Barack Obama, is featured in a Forbes.com Q&A, titled “Danielle Gray of O'Melveny, on The White House, House Of Cards, and Ashley Madison.”
In the article, the reporter explores Gray’s decision to make the move from the White House to private practice and the skillset she brought with her. “The experience advising on a range of policy areas, from health care to consumer financial services to innovation and technology to labor, has really translated into the private arena,” Gray said in the article. “In the government, issues are rarely one-dimensional. You have to think about policy, communications, law, and often find yourself thinking about all of these things in a crisis or uncertain environment. So too with our clients, who are often managing legal, business, governance, and reputational risks in resolving some of their most important challenges,” she said.
Gray is a member of O’Melveny’s Financial Services Practice and resides in the Firm’s New York and Washington, DC offices.
