Sports Lawyer Marissa Meli Promoted to Associate General Counsel of Green Bay Packers
Marissa Meli has been promoted to Associate General Counsel of the Green Bay Packers. Meli, a Wisconsin native, joined the Packers almost five years ago as the team’s Corporate Transactions Counsel. Prior to that, she spent two years as an attorney at the U.S. Department of Justice.
Meli received her JD from the University of Illinois College of Law in 2014, where she graduated Magna Cum Laude
In her short career, she has earned the praise of Ed Policy, the Packers’ Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel.
“Marissa has been a tremendous addition to the Green Bay Packers’ legal team,” Policy told the media a couple years ago. “As a Green Bay native, she has a deep understanding of what the Packers mean to the community as the NFL’s only publicly owned team. That unique perspective serves as an excellent complement to her sharp legal mind that was honed from an excellent law school education at the University of Illinois and valuable early professional experience. She brings a perfect skillset to our interesting blend of legal work.”
