A partner in the Government Matters practice, Tamra leverages her prior experience as a DOJ attorney representing the United States and its federal agencies to advise clients in government-facing litigation and investigations including those initiated by DOJ, FTC, CFPB and State Attorneys General. Her primary focus is government-facing healthcare disputes, but clients across a variety of regulated industries benefit from her ability to identify innovative, business-minded solutions to regulatory disputes and other matters. 

Prior to joining King & Spalding, Tamra was senior counsel at a Fortune 100, global aerospace and defense technology company, where she managed a diverse litigation docket, including bid protests and appeals from contracting officer final decisions ("COFDs").  She also played a key role in developing the company’s artificial intelligence (“AI”) governance framework. Recognizing the growing importance of AI to clients that develop products that rely on AI or use AI technologies in their business operations, Tamra obtained a certification in global AI policy. A recognized authority in AI ethics, she is a peer reviewer for the Journal of AI & Ethics and has spoken at national conferences on AI ethics, bias mitigation and privacy.

Earlier in her career, Tamra was senior counsel in the Department of Justice’s Civil Division, Federal Programs Branch, where she represented the United States in politically-significant legal challenges to federal policies and programs impacting the healthcare and other regulated industries. She is an accomplished litigator, having briefed over two dozen preliminary and dispositive motions and argued the same in federal district courts across the country. Tamra also has experience litigating under federal consumer protection and civil rights laws based on her tenure as senior litigation counsel in the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and as a staff attorney in the Federal Trade Commission’s Bureau of Consumer Protection, Division of Financial Practices. At the FTC, Tamra led several fair lending investigations utilizing a then-novel theory of liability that relied in part on statistically-significant disparities in Home Mortgage Disclosure Act data.  

Previously, Tamra clerked for now-Chief Judge Roger L. Gregory of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit and for Judge Ronald R. Lagueux of the United States District Court for the District of Rhode Island.
