梅雷律师的专业领域集中于专利诉讼和复杂的商业诉讼。他向美国大型的新兴企业提供咨询服务。他独特的国际化背景和在商业、科技、法律方面多样化的经历,使他能够以全球化的视角对知识产权、商业问题和策略提出独到的见解。

梅律师也在联邦地区法院代理了许多客户有关集体诉讼,国际商业纠纷等各类复杂多样的商业诉讼案件。他曾诉讼过一个有关联合国国际货物销售合同公约的罕见案例。
在成立美国美科律师事务所之前, 梅律师曾在位于华盛顿哥伦比亚特区的美国飞翰Finnegan律师事务所工作。
梅律师在进入法学院之前,曾在信息技术行业中享有成功的职业生涯:在PNV, Inc.这家新兴电子信息公司任职软件工程师和高级程序员兼分析师期间,他领导了很多软件项目的开发。作为 Office Depot, Inc.的顾问,他还曾专门为公司提供有关商业逻辑、关系数据库和电子商务解决方案的业务和技术服务。后来他加入了这家公司的全球电子商务部门,为公司数十亿美元的电子商务业务发展做出了贡献。
在法学院的期间,梅律师就曾担任杜克环境法律及政策论坛期刊的研究编辑工作。在校期间,他还曾代理一个贫困客户打赢了客户根据社会伤残保障起诉的上诉案。
