Jamie Lee



Jamie Lee is a litigator and a member of Nixon Peabody’s Complex Commercial Disputes practice group. She represents individuals and corporations in a wide variety of cases, including corporate governance, contract disputes, government enforcement proceedings and investigations, antitrust compliance and merger clearance, distressed commercial debt litigation, opioid litigation, and tax credit litigation.

Prior to joining Nixon Peabody, Jamie served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable W. Michel Pierson of the Circuit Court for Baltimore City and the Honorable Kevin F. Arthur of the Maryland Court of Special Appeals. As a law clerk, she researched and drafted numerous judicial opinions for cases involving criminal law, torts, and corporate governance, some establishing Maryland precedent.

What do you focus on?

I focus my practice on complex commercial disputes in both state and federal courts throughout the country. I represent individuals and corporations in a variety of cases, including corporate governance, contract disputes, government enforcement proceedings and investigations, antitrust compliance and merger clearance, distressed commercial debt litigation, opioid litigation, and tax credit litigation. I handle all aspects of the litigation process, drafting complaints and discovery, engaging in motions process, taking and defending depositions, and drafting appellate briefs.

What do you see on the horizon?

With the rise of artificial intelligence, I think the legal profession will transform in such a way that attorneys will be able to dedicate more time to higher-level tasks, such as advising clients, negotiating settlements and arguing in court.

Other Experience

Jamie also served as an intern in the White House during the Obama administration.
