Nilay Patel is an Indian American lawyer, editor, and journalist, best known for his work at technology news websites Engadget and The Verge. Nilay had his first blogging gig at Gapers Block, a Chicago-centric blog. He was offered a full-time job at Engadget in 2008. After serving at Engadget, he left in 2011 and went on to work for The Verge. In 2014 he left The Verge to join sister site Vox, but later returned to The Verge to become its new editor-in-chief, replacing Joshua Topolsky.

Throughout his career, he has appeared on NHK, G4TV, and TWiT, among many others. Patel was also a co-host for The Vergecast. Andrew Beaujon of the Poynter Institute cited Patel's work at The Verge as an example of how lawyer-journalists are useful for news websites.
