Iris Gibson

As an associate in the Business Litigation Practice Group, Iris Gibson focuses her practice on writing and on effectively telling her clients’ stories. At the pretrial level, Ms. Gibson authors summary judgment and other dispositive motions, which help her clients resolve their cases at the earliest possible stage. At the trial phase, Ms. Gibson effectively presents her clients’ positions and defenses in complex commercial disputes involving claims such as fraud, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, tortious interference, and negligence. Ms. Gibson concentrates on commercial and franchise-related litigation.

Before joining the firm, Ms. Gibson was a litigation consultant, providing financial, economic, and damage analysis for business disputes.

Ms. Gibson’s passion for telling her clients’ stories extends to those without access to the legal system. Her enthusiasm for pro bono work earned Ms. Gibson the 2010 J. Chrys Dougherty Award for exemplary dedication and commitment to the principle of access to justice for all people regardless of income.
