DAVID M. GOSSETT NAMED ACTING DEPUTY GENERAL COUNSEL FOR LITIGATION,

OFFICE OF GENERAL COUNSEL

Washington, D.C

. – The Office of General Counsel today named David M. Gossett as Acting Deputy
General Counsel for Litigation. Mr. Gossett will have day-to-day responsibility for directing the FCC’s
advocacy in the nation’s courts.
“We are very fortunate to have David join our team of talented appellate and district-court advocates, said
FCC Acting General Counsel Jonathan Sallet. “As a tested appellate lawyer, with experience in both
government and the private sector, David will add skill and legal scholarship to our litigation team that
will advance the interests of the Commission.”
Mr. Gossett joins the FCC from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, where he was Assistant
General Counsel for Litigation. Prior to that, he was a partner at Mayer Brown LLP, and was a visiting
professor at the Riga, Latvia Graduate School of Law in the fall semesters of 1999 and 2000. He served as
an Honors Program attorney at the U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Frauds Group, and clerked for the
Hon. Diane P. Wood, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.
His extensive volunteer work includes co-founding a non-profit called The Green Bag, which is dedicated
to publishing short, well-written works of legal scholarship – and also helped design bobble-head dolls of
the Supreme Court Justices. He received his law degree with High Honors, Order of the Coif, from the
University of Chicago Law School. He earned a B.A in psychology from Reed College and an M.A. in
psychology from the University of Pennsylvania.
