About Us

Yetter Coleman LLP is a single-office, single-mission trial and appellate boutique that focuses exclusively on high-stakes business and technology litigation for plaintiffs and defendants, primarily in the energy, technology, and financial services industries. Our core practices are contract/business torts, antitrust/securities, and intellectual property litigation. We represent clients in venues across the country with a deep bench of experienced trial and appellate lawyers whose greatest strength is in courtroom presentation of evidence and argument to judges and juries.

Our History

Founded in 1997 in Houston, Texas by Paul Yetter, a former partner with Baker Botts, the firm grew steadily. Ten years after opening our doors, we further extended our commitment to our clients when Greg Coleman joined us in 2007 and brought with him an outstanding group of appellate lawyers. The resulting combination of our first-tier trial and appellate talent allowed us to offer our clients a unique, integrated team approach from which the best strategic decisions could be developed for every stage of litigation.

In 2010, we announced our name change to Yetter Coleman LLP to reflect the synergy of our trial and appellate practices, and we embarked upon a new era for the firm. Tragically, in November of the same year, Greg died in a plane crash, leaving behind family, friends, and colleagues who will forever remember his graciousness, humility, and charity, along with his sincere dedication to his clients. Reagan Simpson joined the firm in 2011 as partner and head of the firm's appellate practice. A decade later, Connie Pfeiffer joined the firm in 2020 as a partner to lead the next generation of the firm's appellate team.
