A Law Firm for Ambitious Companies
With offices in Atlanta and Washington, D.C., and more than 180 attorneys, AGG helps companies, organizations, and individuals create, grow, and protect their hard-earned assets. Our clients appreciate that we serve as an extension of their in-house leadership and capabilities to help anticipate and respond to opportunities and threats, comply with ever-growing complex regulatory requirements, and continuously invest in knowing their legal and business priorities. AGG is a law firm with the size, capabilities, and client service approach to provide big-firm services without big-firm fees and bureaucracy.
Since 1949, AGG has been a solutions partner that subscribes to the belief “not if, but how." As a representation of our commitment to this belief, in 2016, the firm entered the ranks of the nation's largest 200 law firms, as recognized by its entry into The American Lawyer magazine’s “Am Law 200” ranking. As stated by our managing partner, “The Am Law recognition demonstrates that when all you do is centered on helping clients achieve their definition of success and value, then firm growth and personal fulfillment will follow.”
Responding to a Changing Marketplace
We maintain our success by holding true to our core values and remaining nimble enough to answer client needs as market conditions change. Increased globalization, stricter regulations, and protection of information are areas in which AGG has responded by expanding practices and adding experienced attorneys to help our clients, who are often growth-oriented but resource-constrained. Our Washington, D.C. office plays a critical role in keeping our attorneys and clients at the forefront of regulatory changes, particularly in the areas of real estate, healthcare, food and drug/life sciences, consumer regulatory, privacy, financial services, global logistics and transportation, technology, and information services. Our firm also maintains a robust knowledge base regarding closely held and family-owned businesses that is applied across all legal practices and industry teams, given the unique needs of these companies and their founders and owners.
National and International Relevance and Reach
Not limited by our office footprint, our firm has a history of serving clients across the U.S. and abroad because of our preeminence in several industries, and our depth of knowledge of international laws and regulations. This dates back to our founders maintaining an office in France to serve Walt Disney’s intellectual property needs in the early 1950s and leads up to our recent recognition of being a top law firm in the Southeast for economic development, helping international companies locate manufacturing, operations, and headquarters into the Southeast. Our Real Estate, Healthcare, Logistics and Transportation, Background Screening, and Financial Institutions practices serve many of the largest companies in their respective industries. For example, our Healthcare practice serves eight of the top 10 largest long-term care companies across the country. Our international capabilities are expansive and include cross-border transactions and litigation, global logistics and transportation, international privacy, and international arbitration. Chairman Glenn Hendrix is the founding president of the Atlanta International Arbitration Society (AtlAS). This non-profit organization promotes Atlanta as a venue to resolve international commercial and investment disputes. Glenn is also a member of the American Bar Association, where he currently serves as chair of the Central European and Eurasian Law Initiative (CEELI) Council. Glenn and AGG partner, Michael Burke, are both past chairs of the American Bar Association – Section of International Law.
AGG enhances its international services for clients through our membership in Legalink, a network of more than 70 independent law firms comprising approximately 3,500 lawyers practicing in many of the world’s leading commercial areas. We are also a member of the exclusive global network Employment Law Alliance. Our membership in these organizations allows AGG to offer cost-effective solutions and further augment existing concentrations of international knowledge and experience.
