May 11, 2011

CLEVELAND, OH - Reminger Co., LPA attorney Laurie J. Avery was selected by the Burton Awards for Legal Achievement among the "Best Law Firm Writers of 2011."  The article, entitled "Zippo and Internet Activity: The New Language of Personal Jurisdiction?" was published in DRI's For the Defense, Spring 2010. The article explores recent case law which has developed specialized tests for applying traditional personal jurisdiction standards to internet activity and how corporations can prepare to efficiently address their exposure to being sued in jurisdictions with which they have little or no contact beyond a generalized presence on the internet.

The Burton Awards for Legal Achievement, held in association with the Library of Congress, recently announced thirty winners among all the entries of articles on legal subjects published within the past year. The Burton Awards were established to select the finest law firm and law school authors.  The event will be held at the Library of Congress on June 13, 2011, featuring Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor as the guest speaker.

Avery serves as the Managing Partner of  Reminger's Toledo office. She has successfully defended numerous jury trials in matters ranging from employment discrimination, professional negligence, general tort and commercial disputes. Avery represents professionals and businesses in a wide range of matters in both state and federal courts in Ohio and Michigan. She serves as a Leader of the Employment Practices, Commercial Premises Liability, Intellectual Property, Internet & Technology and Diversity Committees and is a member of the firm’s Management Group.

Avery is a frequent lecturer for Council on Education in Management on employment related topics. She has presented at numerous continuing legal education seminars in the areas of commercial premises liability, employment law, professional liability and technology.  For the last two years she was selected as “Who’s Who in Area Law” by the Toledo Business Journal and received Toledo’s “20 under 40” Leadership Award in 2009.
