Melissa Liebermann joined the Office of the Attorney General as Counsel to the Attorney General in October 2016.

Prior to joining the Office of the Attorney General, Liebermann was a Managing Director at K2 Intelligence, an international investigative consulting firm. In this role, Liebermann managed integrity monitoring teams charged with overseeing government spending for large-scale projects and also directed investigations, audits and compliance reviews for public and private sector clients.

Liebermann previously served for eight years in the Office of the State Comptroller, first as Chief of Staff and then as Deputy State Comptroller. During her tenure as Chief of Staff, a role she assumed upon creation of the Office of the State Comptroller in 2008, Liebermann oversaw all office operations, including matters related to staffing and personnel, and also coordinated the activities of the office’s four divisions. As Deputy State Comptroller, Liebermann oversaw audits of government programs, investigations of misconduct by government employees, procurement reviews of significant government contracts and the office’s responsibility to uncover waste, fraud and abuse in the Medicaid program. During her tenure with the office Liebermann oversaw the issuance of public reports and also served as primary advisor to the State Comptroller for all legal and policy issues relating to the office’s execution of its mission.

Prior to joining the Office of the State Comptroller, Liebermann served as an Assistant Counsel to the Governor both in the Governor’s Authorities Unit and as judicial and prosecutorial appointments counsel. She began her career as a Deputy Attorney General in the Department of Law and Public Safety representing the Division of Consumer Affairs in its efforts to enforce the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act. Liebermann later worked as a litigation associate at the law firm of Greenbaum, Rowe, Smith & Davis, where she represented both large and small clients in complex, commercial litigation.

Liebermann received her undergraduate degree from Tufts University in 1995 and her law degree with honors from Rutgers University School of Law in Newark in 1999. Upon graduation from law school, Liebermann served as a law clerk for the Honorable Philip S. Carchman, Judge of the Appellate Division (retired).
