Lori Hood - Partner

Lori’s initial practice was concentrated in commercial litigation. Over time Lori developed a diverse civil litigation practice spanning contract, tort, employment, probate, estate planning and bankruptcy issues in a number of industries, including energy, real estate and insurance. Lori’s practice involves acting as general counsel to a variety of businesses. She is involved in counseling her clients on formation and structuring issues, corporate governance, operational issues, employee issues, contract negotiations, mergers and acquisitions, real estate and financial transactions. Lori’s experience in the area of litigation includes first chair jury trials in state and federal court, administrative agency proceedings, and alternative dispute resolution, including arbitration.  Lori is the mother of three daughters whose extracurricular activities force Lori into participating in activities which exceed her skill level, including horseback riding, waterskiing, karaoke and poker. Lori still maintains a distinct advantage in debate.
