Grewal is responsible for Coinbase’s legal, compliance, global intelligence, risk and policy groups.

Before joining Coinbase, Grewal was Vice President and Deputy General Counsel at Facebook. He also has served as United States Magistrate Judge for the Northern District of California.
“We are excited to add Mr. Grewal’s expertise to our Board of Directors. He has a rare combination of experience in private practice, as a highly respected federal judge, and as a leading in-house lawyer and business executive for corporate legal and compliance teams,” said Monica Enand, Zapproved Founder and CEO. “His counsel will be critical as we continue to grow the market presence of ZDiscovery® and help us architect the next chapter of Zapproved.”
Grewal was previously a partner at Howrey LLP, where his practice focused on technology litigation. He has tried cases from Marshall, Texas to Wilmington, Delaware, and has argued before various federal appellate courts. Grewal served as a law clerk to Federal Circuit Judge Arthur J. Gajarsa and United States District Judge Sam H. Bell. He received his JD from the University of Chicago and his SB from MIT.
“I admire Zapproved’s belief that technology can transform the lives of corporate legal professionals. Great products have been proven to create meaningful efficiencies that I have seen impact my own work,” said Grewal. “I am honored to work alongside founder and CEO, Monica Enand, and her team, as we continue to further accelerate innovation and create even more solutions to better serve the ediscovery community.”
Grewal will join the existing Board of Directors effective immediately. The search for Grewal was supported by Vista’s independent board program, which leverages the firm’s network to source qualified board candidates for its portfolio companies.
