Joynes, Greta

Greta Joynes is co-chair of the firm’s technology and telecommunications practice. As federal policymakers consider industry-altering laws and regulations on issues such as data privacy, supply chain security, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity, she positions companies for success. Greta’s technical understanding of her clients’ businesses and political intuition on when and how to engage the government on their behalf has resulted in market-changing outcomes for small business coalitions, Series-A startups and Fortune 15 corporations. This success is credited to the enduring relationships she forges between her clients, the administration and Congress, and her proven ability to frame issues and pitch policy solutions in ways that resonate with key Republican decision-makers. Whether she is navigating a high-profile antitrust review by the FCC, advocating on issues of national security before DoD and the White House, or achieving appropriations wins that propel business growth, Greta works hard to both protect and promote her clients.

Prior to joining Brownstein, Greta served as deputy chief of staff and legislative director for Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL), where she advised the congressman on the House Energy and Commerce (E&C) Subcommittee on Communications and Technology, and worked closely with E&C’s Energy, Health, Environment and Economy Subcommittees. In this role, Greta drafted key legislation and amendments on a number of issues that came before the committee, including emerging technologies, public safety, the internet and the FCC.
