Attorney Patrick Kennedy has just been named a Fellow in the International Academy of Trial Lawyers at their annual meeting in London. Patrick joins Managing Partner John Houlihan as a Fellow of this prestigious organization.
The Academy limits Fellowship to 500 active trial lawyers from the United States and includes over 150 Fellows from nearly 40 countries across the globe.
Fellowship in the Academy is by invitation only, and trial lawyers become Fellows only after an extremely rigorous vetting process, which includes both peer and judicial review. The Academy seeks out Fellows who have achieved a career of excellence as shown by their skills in trial, and as demonstrated by their integrity and professionalism. Members are often heavily involved in pro bono efforts and contribute generously of their time and resources to their local communities.
