Michelle De Blasi

Shareholder at Greenberg Traurig

“Mother, wife, attorney and passionate community thought leader, Michelle De Blasi inspires the Valley’s business community to strive for a better future for Arizona. After starting her legal career in Seattle, Michelle returned to Arizona in 2002: Arizona’s energy and environmental sectors offer many opportunities and I’m proud to be a part of shaping our future, she says. Michelle is a shareholder at the international law firm of Greenberg Traurig and focuses her practice on environmental and energy law. She is co-chair of the Arizona Energy Consortium, a committee of the Arizona Technology Council, and has worked on numerous community programs and initiatives. During the last year, the Arizona Energy Consortium released the Arizona Energy Roadmap, a dynamic plan developed to help direct Arizona’s energy future. Her involvement with the Consortium, the Green Chamber, Gov. Brewer's Master Energy Plan and Arizona Forward demonstrate the value effective leaders can bring to the community.” —Jolene Eder, law student who interned for De Blasi
