BOSTON, March 3, 2015: Morgan Lewis partner Jonathan Albano has been inducted as a Fellow into the American College of Trial Lawyers. Mr. Albano joins 16 other Morgan Lewis trial lawyers in their membership of the premier U.S. legal association.
Recognized by Chambers USA as a leading litigation practitioner, Mr. Albano primarily represents private and public companies and financial institutions in commercial, media and appellate litigation. He has tried and obtained favorable results for clients in contract disputes, libel, purchase price adjustment and complex construction claims. His practice also includes representing newspapers, entertainment and news broadcasters, publishers, universities, nonprofit organizations, and individuals in cases involving a variety of constitutional issues, including free speech rights; the public’s right of access to information; and privacy, defamation and equal protection claims. Mr. Albano serves on the Board of Trustees of the Boston Bar Foundation and as treasurer of the Boston Bar Association. He has also been recognized by Best Lawyers in America and Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly.
Fellowship in the College is extended only by invitation, after careful consideration, to those experienced trial lawyers who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility, and collegiality, according to the American College of Trial Lawyers. Lawyers must have a minimum of 15 years of trial experience before they can be considered for fellowship.
There are approximately 5,700 Fellows across the United States and Canada, including active, Emeritus, Judicial, and Honorary Fellows. Membership in the College can never exceed one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province. Qualified lawyers are called to Fellowship in the College from all branches of trial practice. They are selected from advocates who represent plaintiffs or defendants in civil proceedings of all types, as well as prosecutors and criminal defense lawyers.
