Nancy Easterling
615.850.8834 direct

For over 40 years, business defendants in complex, high-stakes litigation have sought out Ames Davis to guide them through the trial and dispute resolution process. From uniquely difficult probate matters to complex securities litigation, clients can trust Ames' sound judgment and leadership. Part of what makes Ames such an effective counselor and trial attorney is his intellectual curiosity. Beyond the legal issues at stake, Ames immerses himself in the business or industry of the client. Litigation is rarely enjoyable, but Ames eases the stress clients feel during the litigation process by demonstrating that he understands the client's point of view and frames his advice in understandable terms.

Ames' experience in complex securities litigation has led a number of publicly-traded companies to hire him as special outside counsel to audit committees in connection with internal investigations relating to securities and accounting issues.

Ames has been recognized in Chambers USA and for over 20 years has been listed in Best Lawyers for his work in commercial litigation.
