O’Melveny Worldwide

Danielle Feuer is a counsel in O’Melveny’s New York office, where she focuses her practice on complex civil litigation. Danielle is a versatile attorney, with experience in areas as diverse as food labeling and copyright law, and she consistently adapts to the dynamic needs of her clients. Danielle is often tapped for bet-the-company litigations, in which she appreciates the challenge of shaping underdeveloped areas of the law.

Danielle is best known for her written advocacy, routinely securing dismissals for her clients on the pleadings alone. But she is also experienced in pre-suit negotiations, getting would-be plaintiffs to stand down without the need for judicial intervention. Danielle likewise has a robust advisory practice through which she advises companies on high-stakes internal matters and helps them chart a course through unsettled legal terrain. Trained in appellate litigation, Danielle also has led the firm’s Advocacy Institute for its newest associates.

At O’Melveny, Danielle has maintained her longstanding commitment to public service. She has an active pro bono practice, with a focus on appellate matters before the US Courts of Appeals and the US Supreme Court. In her pro bono work, Danielle has handled matters addressing immigration, educational equality, disability discrimination, and defendants’ due process rights.

Prior to joining O’Melveny, Danielle served as a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Jacqueline H. Nguyen of the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and the Honorable John A. Kronstadt of the US District Court for the Central District of California. Danielle graduated from Yale Law School, where she co-directed its Supreme Court Advocacy Clinic, in addition to undertaking significant other clinical work.
