BEHIND DATATECH LAW: ALICIA GILLESKIE
Alicia Gilleskie has been helping organizations in the technology industry innovate for most of the last 20 years, counseling on leading-edge business models, operations, and relationships. A former partner for one of North Carolina’s largest law firms, she has a vast knowledge of the laws and regulations pertaining to IT and data, giving her the unique ability to develop forward-looking legal solutions in this ever-changing industry.
Coordination Across Disciplines
Alicia brings multiple disciplines to her practice – spanning data privacy and security, data and IP ownership, licensing, commercial contracting, compliance, and related regulatory frameworks. She believes that lawyers who practice in technology and data privacy bring the most value when their skill sets align with the industry, and not around siloed practice areas. This inspired her to establish a law practice that positions her expertise across a range of disciplines, maximizing her value.
Client Types and Services
Alicia works with clients across industries in commercial and non-profit endeavors. In recent years, she has spent much of her time advising a large academic medical center on health IT, digital health, AI, and other cutting-edge technologies that engage the health care industry in new ways. She has significant depth in legal issues surrounding electronic health record (EHR) systems, including Epic Systems.
Alicia also represents technology growth companies, serving as their fractional General Counsel, or on a project basis. Her most current focus is on digital platform companies, including those involved in digital banking and financial technology, and cloud-based security and compliance.
