Howard M. Shapiro, a partner at WilmerHale, has been inducted as a Fellow into the American College of Trial Lawyers. The induction ceremony took place on Saturday, September 27 during the College’s 58th Annual Meeting in Toronto, Ontario.

Fellowship in the College is extended only by invitation, after careful investigation, 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. Lawyers must have a minimum of 15 years trial experience before they can be considered for fellowship.

There are approximately 5,700 Fellows across the US and Canada, including active, Emeritus, Judicial and Honorary Fellows. Membership in the College can never exceed 1% 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 among advocates who represent plaintiffs or defendants in civil proceedings of all types, as well as prosecutors and criminal defense lawyers. The College is thus able to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the administration of justice.

Howard Shapiro is the Chair of the Litigation/Controversy Department and a member of the Securities and Regulatory and Government Affairs Departments. He is also a member of the Complex Commercial Litigation, Investigations and Criminal Litigation, Securities Enforcement, Securities Litigation, and Defense, National Security and Government Contracts Practice Groups.
