New Lawyers Join Advanced Micro Devices and Micron Technology


Advanced Micro Devices Inc. and Micron Technology Inc. have announced the hiring of new legal professionals, Ava Hahn and Michael Ray, respectively. Hahn joins AMD after a four-year tenure as a lawyer at Lam Research Corp. Michael Ray comes to Micron after resigning from his position as a long-time lawyer and secretary of Western Digital Corp. based in San Jose, California.

In recent times, AMD’s stock has seen significant growth, surpassing even Nvidia Corp., as processor manufacturers observe an increasing demand for products that power and support artificial intelligence technologies. Boise-based Micron is the largest American memory semiconductor manufacturer for computers.

Hahn has previously worked in legal positions for telecommunications company ShoreTel Inc. and semiconductor manufacturer Genesis Microchip Inc., as well as for CA Technologies Inc. and Aruba Networks Inc., which were later acquired by other technology companies. Additionally, Hahn has also served as a legal head for capital investment firms such as Kleiner Perkins and Felicis Ventures.

According to Bloomberg Law data, the legal firm Morrison & Foerster has been involved in approximately 20% of the cases involving AMD in U.S. federal courts over the past five years. Following closely are O’Melveny & Myers with 13% and Fish & Richardson with almost 10%. Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe and Winston & Strawn together have taken on over 50% of Micron’s U.S. legal cases in the past five years, according to Bloomberg Law data. Tiffany Scurry, former compliance head of Western Digital, joined AMD last year in the same role.
