About Amy

Learn Amy’s areas of practice.

Amy Williams-Derry’s practice at Keller Rohrback L.L.P. combines her passion for protecting people and the environment with her talent and experience in commercial litigation, complex financial transactions, and consumer protection.

Amy is a senior member of the Complex Litigation Group at Keller Rohrback, where she draws on her diverse background representing plaintiffs, defendants, and coordinating with federal and state governmental entities to secure the best results for her clients. Prior to law school, Amy worked on environmental and transportation issues in Washington, D.C. At the University of Virginia School of Law, Amy was the Editor-in-Chief of the Virginia Environmental Law Journal.

After practicing commercial litigation for five years with a prominent Seattle firm, Amy applied her trial, arbitration, and mediation experience to an environmental law fellowship in the non-profit sector. Working with Earthjustice, she fought for salmon, old-growth timber forests, and endangered species in litigation in state and federal courts throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Amy joined Keller Rohrback in 2005 with this wealth of experience in commercial litigation and environmental law. At Keller Rohrback, Amy has expanded her docket to include complex class actions, investor cases, and multi-defendant actions. Amy thrives on solving complex problems by looking at them from a variety of angles, and her practice has flourished at Keller Rohrback where she has played key roles in cases nationwide in ERISA, securities, complex financial transactions, consumer protection, and environmental actions on behalf of both institutions and individuals.

Amy has represented clients in proceedings involving the U.S. Department of Justice, as well as in mediation and arbitration settings, including before the National Labor Relations Board, National Association of Securities Dealers, and the New York Stock Exchange. Amy’s current representative cases include Doe, et al. v. Donald Trump, President of the United States, et al. (W.D. Wash.), Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston v. Ally Financial, Inc., et al. (Suffolk Cty. Mass.), Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago v. Banc of America Funding Corp., et al. (Cook Cty. Ill.), and Oregon v. Monsanto Co., et al. (Multnomah Cty. Ore.).

Amy serves as a cooperating attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Washington, and is a Special Assistant Attorney General for the State of Oregon.
