Alex Megaris focuses on complex regulatory investigations and government enforcement matters involving state attorneys general, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), state regulatory agencies, and the U.S. Congress. Alex also works closely with Venable's government affairs team in advocating for clients before these agencies. She has extensive experience with consumer protection laws, such as state unfair, deceptive and abusive practices (UDAAP) laws, the FTC Act, the Consumer Financial Protection Act, the FTC's Telemarketing Sales Rule, and product-specific regulations, including those regulating credit reporting, loan servicing, and debt collection.
Alex has recent experience providing strategic advice and counsel to high-profile political ventures, including a high-net-worth individual exploring federal office and a presidential campaign. Through these experiences and her government litigation and investigations work, Alex brings a legal, business, and crisis-management sensibility to her clients, their management, and boards, offering thoughtful, creative, and pragmatic solutions to often thorny issues to help them manage their legal and reputational risks.
