Pallett Valo announced that Maria Ruberto, partner and head of Pallett Valo’s construction practice, has been inducted as a fellow of the Canadian College of Construction Lawyers.

According to the Mississagua, Ont., firm’s press release Ruberto was inducted by the board of governors of the college at its virtual annual conference. The event, originally intended to be a full weekend event at St. Andrews by the Sea, N.B., including a gala dinner, was reimagined as a virtual conference and the show went on with business as usual and the inductees receiving the full recognition and prestige that the designation deserves.

The press release added that the purpose of the college is to facilitate and encourage the association of outstanding construction lawyers throughout Canada who are distinguished for their skill, experience and high standards of professional and ethical conduct in the practice or teaching of construction law and who are dedicated to excellence in the specialized practice of construction law.

According to John Russo, managing partner, “Our Pallett Valo family couldn’t be happier that Maria has been recognized by her peers as an outstanding construction lawyer. She has been an incredible source of positive energy in the firm for many years and deserves the recognition that has now been bestowed upon her. Her passion for her work and her desire to share her knowledge has been inspirational for people in the construction industry and for her colleagues. I am sure this honour will continue to motivate her even more in the future.”
