Hannah is an associate in the State AG Group and represents a wide range of clients facing investigations brought by state attorneys general, the Federal Trade Commission and the National Advertising Division, an independent self-regulatory agency established by the U.S. advertising industry to build consumer trust in advertising and support fair competition in the marketplace.
Hannah’s clients include start-ups, trade associations, and Fortune 100 companies spanning the hospitality, technology, pharmaceutical, software, automobile, manufacturing, and retail industries. She advises consumer-facing businesses on building relationships with state AG offices and other regulatory agencies in advance of potential scrutiny.

She is currently representing several clients in ongoing data breach investigations led by state attorneys general and has a detailed understanding of the protocols and procedures involved in defending these investigations with a view to minimizing impact on business operations and reputational damage.
