WASHINGTON — The Federal Communications Commission has promoted two of its attorneys to the agency’s top legal posts: Matthew Berry as general counsel, and Ajit Pai as deputy general counsel. Berry most recently served as the FCC’s deputy general counsel. Before joining the FCC, he served as counselor to the Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Policy in the U.S. Department of Justice, where he earned the department’s John Marshall Award for providing legal advice related to counter-terrorism policy. Before that position, he served as an attorney-adviser in the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel. Berry, a former law clerk for Justice Clarence Thomas, received his J.D. from Yale Law School. Pai steps up to the deputy general counsel post from his job as associate general counsel. Before joining the commission, Pai served as chief counsel of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution; as senior counsel at the Office of Legal Policy at the U.S. Department of Justice; as deputy chief counsel of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Administrative Oversight and the Courts, and as associate general counsel at Verizon Communications Inc. Pai graduated from the University of Chicago Law School, where he was an editor of the University of Chicago Law Review.
