About this practice


Artificial intelligence technologies, including generative AI, machine learning algorithms and data analytics, can make it easier to enhance productivity, refine recruitment efforts, improve customer relationships, and streamline processes. Yet adopting and implementing such technologies can simultaneously add significant complexity for an organization’s, operations, sales, manufacturing, and human capital management operations. 

That’s why organizations of all sizes turn to Jackson Lewis for industry-specific insights and actionable advice on the legal, ethical and regulatory implications of using AI and machine learning in the workplace. From screening job applicants to deploying chatbots, smart cameras and surveillance, assessing and enhancing productivity and performance, and self-service training tools and more, our multi-disciplinary Artificial Intelligence & Automation team understands the business needs of organizations that are creating or leveraging AI-related technologies. We help organizations better address the full range of procurement, assessment, development, implementation, use, and maintenance of AI technologies.


Whether you’re strategically thinking about the benefits and risks of AI, or you are on the procurement/development or implementation side of AI, or managing the vast in between, our team has experience serving the spectrum of AI users.


An organization’s particular goals and desired use cases for AI often come with unique industry, contractual, ethical and other considerations. Our cross-practice/industry team provides practical compliance, litigation and regulatory strategies and tactics across the range of AI and automation technology issues.
