AMALIE L. TUFFIN, Whitmeyer Tuffin PLLC, Raleigh
I spent about a decade as an officer of the Chapel Hill Bird Club, an organization founded in the 1930s that helps encourage a devotion to birding, nature and conservation. I participate in eight to 10 bird counts a year for the National Audubon Society. Its Christmas Bird Counts, in particular, are one of the largest — if not the largest — examples of citizen science in the world.
Vita: Born May 13, 1967, in Marlborough, Mass.; bachelor’s from Harvard University, law degree from University of California’s Hastings College of the Law and master’s from Boston University; partner and two children.
What she’d be if not a lawyer: A history or literature teacher.
Memorable case: I was honored to represent Overture Networks Inc. in its 2011 acquisition of Hatteras Networks Inc. This transaction occurred shortly after I formed Whitmeyer Tuffin PLLC with my partner Randy Whitmeyer, and it was a distinct and enjoyable challenge for our small firm to manage such a significant transaction against a large team from a national firm — while at the same time doing everything it took to get a new business up and running.
Passions: I am a voracious reader, have a decades-long interest in genealogy and enjoy building Legos with my kids.
Favorite place: Sanibel Island, Fla.
Recent reading: Dies the Fire series by S.M. Stirling.
Don’t ask her to: Cook.
