Today’s spotlight: Meghan Grabel
Grabel is a partner at Osborn Maledon, where she leads the Energy, Water, and Utility Practice Group. She teaches the utility law and regulation course at ASU College of Law, has served on several boards of local nonprofit organizations, and is active in several state, regional and national professional organizations.
Lesson learned in 2020: “The importance of trust and adaptability to maintaining a strong and successful team. Fortunately, my practice did not slow during the pandemic. I had to trust that my team would maintain focus on our objectives and be deliberate about how to achieve them while adapting to a remote, technology-intensive, and essentially independent work environment. And we did.”
Source of pride: “Establishing a thriving energy, water, and utility law practice. I left a key position in a good company because I saw a strategic opportunity to use my expertise and fill an underrepresented demographic in Arizona’s utility regulatory bar. My firm is now a valuable player in utility regulation and energy project development, representing multiple clients from a variety of industries.”
Surprising fact: “I sang the National Anthem at a Phoenix Suns game when my children were toddlers. I practiced so frequently at home in preparation that when I took the kids to a baseball game a few years later and the Anthem played, my son looked up and proclaimed, ‘Hey, they are playing mommy’s song.’”
