Mr. Conor Kennedy is a Partner at Garcia Hernández Sawhney, LLP, operating out of the San Francisco Bay Area office, where he serves the firm’s educational and municipal clients across the State of California. Conor’s clients range from K-12 schools and Community College Districts to public safety entities specialized in fire protection and civilian police oversight. Conor’s expertise encompasses the broad range of compliance requirements that apply to the firm’s public sector clients, from H.R. to public ethics and transparency laws, such as the Ralph M. Brown Act, the Political Reform Act of 1974, and the Public Records Act.

Before joining Garcia Hernández Sawhney, Conor helped to lead a public telecommunications project development team under two different Mayoral administrations with the City and County of San Francisco. His prior work experience includes serving as an Appellate Fellow for a legal non-profit in Washington D.C., where he staffed a major Administrative Procedures Act case before the D.C. Circuit of Appeals, drafted amicus briefs to the U.S. Supreme Court, and filed regulatory comments with federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Education. After moving to California in 2012, Conor worked for Kronenberger, Rosenfeld, LLP in San Francisco, where he advised small and medium sized technology companies on the complexities of state and federal regulatory privacy and online disclosure requirements. He built on that experience at the firm of Phillips, Erlewine, Given, & Carlin, LLP staffing a major technology law case against several blue chip Silicon Valley companies.

Conor’s academic achievements are equally impressive. He graduated from Harvard Law School and received his undergraduate Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science, Magna Cum Laude, from Brown University. Conor is admitted to practice in the U.S. District Courts for the Northern and Central Districts of California, and he is formally recognized as a privacy technologist by the International Association of Privacy Professionals.

With his extensive legal knowledge and experience, Conor Kennedy is a valuable asset to Garcia Hernández Sawhney, LLP, and his clients. His dedication to achieving favorable outcomes for his clients has earned him an excellent reputation in the legal community.
