AGG Launches New Women in Tech Law Initiative and Emerging Technologies Industry Team

Atlanta, March 28, 2024 – Arnall Golden Gregory LLP (AGG) is pleased to announce the formation of two technology-related initiatives that double down on the firm’s investment in new, forward-thinking service offerings. In the wake of recent strategic hires, the firm now offers a new initiative titled AGG’s Women in Tech Law (AGG’s WITL) and a new Emerging Technologies industry group.

AGG’s WITL is led by a group of highly experienced women attorneys who are leaders in their practice areas, which range from privacy and cybersecurity to emerging laws and enforcements related to blockchain and AI, as well as tech-focused practices like fintech, venture capital, digital health, and tech transactions. Partners Jacqueline W. Cooney and Allison E. Raley co-chair the group.

The mission of AGG’s WITL is to provide superior service to clients navigating the evolving legal and regulatory landscape that applies to technology companies and companies that invest in, procure, and rely on technology. AGG’s WITL will be a key resource for AGG’s clients who increasingly need deep, sophisticated, tech-related guidance and support.

AGG’s WITL is further committed to fostering mentorship, team building, and community opportunities among women whose careers intersect with or are impacted by technology. Perhaps the most critical component of its mission is to promote technology and the STEM disciplines to future female professionals. AGG’s WITL will be engaging with local and national groups and organizations that serve this group.

“Client challenges related to adtech, generative AI, sophisticated data breaches, compliance with new privacy laws, and cross-border data transfers are among the main topics we address with our clients daily,” said Jackie. “We are fortunate to have this level of depth across an expansive industry under one roof. AGG’s WITL also has a responsibility to mentor the next generation of female technology leaders, both inside and outside of the firm, and we are committed to doing so.”

Allison added, “AGG holds in paramount importance the conviction that attorneys handling pioneering, innovative, and swiftly evolving technological issues for our clients should mirror the ethos of inclusivity and innovation upheld by the clients themselves. We take pride in being one of the select firms with diverse technology-related proficiencies, led by accomplished women who serve as trailblazers in their respective domains.”

Other charter members of AGG’s WITL include Paula M. Nagarajan, Allison S. Cook, Dawn R. Helak, Theresa Y. Kananen, and Madison M. Pool.

The firm also recently announced the launch of its Emerging Technologies industry team, which Jackie and Allison co-chair. The team brings a dual perspective as both in-house and outside counsel when serving clients in spaces related to digital assets, the blockchain ecosystem, AI, payments and fintech, medical technologies, and industries regulated by the SEC. The team comprises nearly 20 professionals across the firm’s technology, privacy and cybersecurity, corporate and venture capital, fintech, intellectual property, and litigation practices.
