Travis Ramey has a broad and diverse litigation practice. He represents clients from the public sector, from a broad range of private-sector industries, and individuals-plaintiffs and defendants. Yet, one thing remains constant: Burr & Forman's clients and attorneys trust Travis to litigate novel and complex legal issues.

Much of that litigation takes place in appellate courts. Travis has litigated numerous appeals, including briefing and arguing cases at both the state and federal level. Those cases have resulted in multiple, precedent-setting decisions on issues as diverse as statutes of limitations, mortgages, jurisdiction, foreclosures, constitutional law, civil procedure, arbitration (both domestic and international), and administrative law. Travis also recently represented a member of Congress as amicus curiae in the U.S. Supreme Court.

In addition to his practice in appellate courts, Travis handles complex trial-court litigation. Those cases often include issues of first impression or legal uncertainty. Whether the case involves an open-records issue, a claim of employment discrimination, a contract dispute, or allegations of fraud, Travis helps ensure his client is in the best possible position to prevail at trial and on appeal.

Before joining Burr & Forman, Travis served as a law clerk to the Honorable Edward E. Carnes of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. While in law school, he served as Editor in Chief of the Alabama Law Review and as a member of the John A. Campbell Moot Court Board. He is a member of the Order of the Coif and received the Dean M. Leigh Harrison Award, which is the law school’s highest academic honor.
