Lawson Lundell LLP announced that Marko Vesely, a partner in the western Canadian firm’s litigation & dispute resolution group, has been welcomed into the fellowship of the Litigation Counsel of America (LCA).

According to the firm’s press release, the Litigation Counsel of America is an invitation-only trial lawyer honorary society established to reflect the new face of the American bar. Membership is limited to 3,500 fellows, representing less than one-half of one per cent of American lawyers. The composition of the LCA is aggressively diverse, with recognition of excellence among American litigation and trial counsel across all segments of the bar.

The purpose of the LCA is to recognize deserving, experienced and highly qualified lawyers, to provide an outlet for scholarly authorship of legal articles on trial and litigation practice, to provide additional sources for professional development, to promote superior advocacy and ethical standards in the practice of law, to assist in community involvement by its membership, and to advance a superior judiciary, by taking relevant positions on issues or legislation affecting judicial compensation and/or benefits, as well as those affecting the American litigation processes.

Fellows are selected and invited into the fellowship after being evaluated for effectiveness and accomplishment in litigation and trial work, along with ethical reputation.

Vesely practises civil and commercial litigation with a focus on class actions, defamation, cross-border disputes, shareholder disputes, pension litigation and commercial arbitrations. He has appeared as lead counsel before the Supreme Court of Canada, the Federal Court of Appeal and at all levels of court in British Columbia and Alberta. He has also served as an arbitrator.
