Aimee Minick Furness is a co-leader of the Commercial Litigation Practice Group of Haynes and Boone. Aimee is experienced in representing entities involved in actions based on tortious interference, breach of contract, and breach of fiduciary duty. She focuses on Real Estate litigation including condemnation and oil and gas issues. Aimee is experienced in franchise and distribution litigation including trademark infringement, breach of non-competition agreements, and breach of license agreements. She also specializes in assisting secured parties recover and retain their secured interest after default.
While Aimee’s focus is on litigation, she also provides clients with pre-litigation counseling. Aimee’s knowledge of frequently-litigated clauses (and the potential outcomes in those disputes) allows her to counsel her clients on potential contracts. Often, a well-written contract can significantly limit a client’s liability in a dispute.
Aimee 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 has tried cases to judgment in both state and federal courts before both judges and juries.
