Daniel Huynh, senior associate in Alston & Bird’s Intellectual Property Litigation Group, has been selected as a member of the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s “40 Under 40” Class of 2016, an elite group of Atlanta professionals recognized for their notable career achievements and contributions to the community.
Huynh was honored for his humanitarian and advocacy efforts on behalf of immigrant victims of human trafficking and domestic violence and his diversity and pro bono leadership. Among his many affiliations, he is a board member of the National Conference of Vietnamese American Attorneys, Vietnamese American Bar Association of Georgia and Tapestri, an organization dedicated to ending violence/abuse in the immigrant/refugee communities. He also serves as chair of the community service committee of the Georgia Asian Pacific American Bar Association and as a volunteer attorney with the Georgia Asylum & Immigration Network, where he represents clients in asylum cases.
This is the second award earned by Huynh this year. In May he was honored as the 2016 recipient of the Atlanta IP Inn of Court’s Pro Bono Award, recognized for his work supporting the independent feature film “Imba Means Sing,” a documentary about the Grammy-nominated African Children’s Choir.
This is the 13th year that the Atlanta Business Chronicle has featured a “40 Under 40” class of rising stars. The program honors 40 men and women under age 40 who have scaled the ranks in real estate, health care, hospitality, technology and law.
