• Biography

    Aimee Furness focuses on clients' needs in litigation - whether that is a "bet the company" litigation or using procedural tactics to rid a client of meritless or frivolous claims. Aimee represents entities involved in actions based on tortious interference, breach of contract, and breach of fiduciary duty and has tried cases to judgment in both state and federal courts before both judges and juries.

    Aimee’s wealth of experience spans a broad range of commercial litigation issues, including Real Estate and Construction Litigation, including condemnation matters, landlord/tenant disputes, property-related disputes and oil and gas issues; and Franchise and Distribution Litigation, including trademark infringement, breach of non-competition agreements, and breach of license agreements and trademark ownership.

    A well-written contract can significantly limit a client's liability in a dispute. Aimee’s knowledge of frequently-litigated clauses (and the potential outcomes in those disputes) allows her to provide clients with pre-litigation counseling on potential contracts.

    Aimee has a peer rating of AV® Preeminent™ by Martindale Hubbell® Law Directory.
