Alison Lo is an associate in Quinn Emanuel’s New York office.  Alison handles a broad range of complex commercial litigation and arbitration disputes, with an emphasis on AI/data privacy class actions involving state and international data protection laws, contract disputes, and high-stakes intellectual property and trade secret matters, representing clients in tech, life sciences, financial services, and other industries.  Alison has an active trial and appellate practice, and has appeared and argued in a variety of forums, including state and federal courts and in arbitration.  Alison has extensive experience taking and defending depositions, working with expert and fact witnesses, and managing complex electronic discovery and document production.  

In addition to representing corporations and individuals in litigation, Alison routinely works behind the scenes (often alongside public relations firms and independent investigators) advising her clients before a claim is ever filed.  Alison also helps her clients navigate ambiguous legal environments related to nascent and evolving legislation (e.g., in ISP liability, copyright, and data privacy), including by devising compliance plans and adapting existing processes and interfacing with industry stakeholders to influence existing or pending regulations.   

Prior to joining Quinn Emanuel in 2021, Alison spent four years in private practice at another international litigation firm.
