Yetter Coleman continues to strengthen its litigation practice with the addition of Jamie Aycock who joins the firm as a partner. Aycock, whose practice focuses on high-stakes, complex commercial and restructuring-related litigation, was previously a partner at Kirkland & Ellis LLP in their Houston office.
Jamie brings significant, successful in-court experience, and is well-versed in commercial litigation, including contract disputes, fraud, and business torts. He also has substantial experience in patent litigation and administrative law.
“I couldn’t be more excited about joining the folks at Yetter Coleman. Since my first day practicing in Houston, Paul Yetter has been held up for me as an example of the very best in our profession. Likewise, in every circle I’ve encountered, Yetter Coleman’s reputation as a trial boutique is second to none. I look forward to working with the firm to deliver the highest value to our clients from this top-notch, nimble boutique platform,” says Jamie.
With a focus on winning, he is skilled at litigating difficult cases that demand analytical rigor, clear writing, and aggressive advocacy. He has a reputation for disentangling intricate factual and legal matters to clearly tell his client’s story.
Jamie is recognized in commercial litigation as a “Texas Rising Star” by Thomson Reuters' Super Lawyers. He served as a briefing attorney for Chief Justice Nathan L. Hecht of the Supreme Court of Texas and holds a J.D. from Harvard Law School, where he served on the editorial board of the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy and earned his bachelor’s degree summa cum laude, with distinction in all subjects, from Cornell University.
“We are excited to welcome Jamie to the firm,” says Tim McConn, partner. “His deep experience in handling complex disputes both inside and outside of the courtroom allows us to continue delivering high value to our clients and it is a wonderful complement to our talented roster. We look forward to practicing with Jamie for many years to come.”
