Heather Harriman

Heather Harriman serves as Of Counsel at Rose Law Firm. She brings a unique skill set to the firm, providing superior client service, plus effective and efficient business solutions for the firm and its clients

Serving as the firm’s lead litigation attorney, Heather’s practice focuses on business and commercial litigation, business “divorce,” closely-held business disputes and derivative litigation, including claims involving breach of fiduciary duty, conflict of interest, oppression, violation of restrictive covenants, breach of contract, intentional interference with economic relations and other business torts. She also has experience in contract disputes, real estate disputes, collections, and debtor-creditor law. Heather has litigated cases in both the state and federal courts throughout Oregon and Washington, before judges and juries, and handled numerous private arbitrations and mediations. With over 20 years of experience and her distinctive background, Heather can draw from a wealth of experience while providing high-level and holistic services to her clients and team. Heather has helped her clients secure and defend millions of dollars in judgments and claims. One example, after successfully prosecuting a two-week jury trial, was a nearly $2 million verdict in a closely-held business dispute.

Heather is a solutions-driven professional who brings her skills in communication, leadership, and project management to our team of dedicated lawyers. Believing that the art of negotiation is just as important as the willingness to try cases, Heather helps to find and implement creative, non-litigation solutions for the firm’s clients. ​

When she’s not practicing law, Heather volunteers for The Classroom Law Project’s We The People, a civics education program and competition that focuses on Constitutional Law.  She also enjoys traveling, hiking and creating art.
