Dallas-based counsel Amanda Pennington Prugh has been named to D Magazine's 2021 Best Lawyers Under 40 list. This is the second consecutive year that D Magazine has honored Prugh as one of the region’s outstanding up-and-coming lawyers.
The annual Best Lawyers Under 40 list is open to all attorneys with a valid Texas Bar number who practice primarily in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Honorees are nominated by their peers and evaluated by a panel composed of distinguished lawyers of varying ages and experience.
Prugh focuses her practice on complex commercial litigation, including claims for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, deceptive trade practices, unfair competition, misappropriation and theft of trade secrets, business fraud and negligence in state, federal and alternative dispute resolution tribunals. Her practice also involves representation of debtors and creditors in bankruptcy-related litigation for domestic and international corporate restructurings.
In addition to her repeated inclusion in the Best Lawyers Under 40 list, Prugh was selected as a Texas Rising Star by Super Lawyers* in 2020.
She received her J.D. from the University of Oklahoma College of Law, where she graduated first in her class and served as assistant managing editor for the Oklahoma Law Review.
