MINNEAPOLIS (September 27, 2006) – Martin R. Lueck, partner at Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi L.L.P. has become a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers.
The induction ceremony took place recently in London, England on September 16, 2006 during the 2006 Annual Meeting of the American Trial Lawyers Association. Lueck was one of three attorneys inducted from Minnesota.
Founded in 1950, the College is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States and Canada. Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only and only 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 fifteen years trial experience before they can be considered for Fellowship.
Membership in the College cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province. There are currently approximately 5,500 members in the United States and Canada.
The College strives to improve and elevate the standards of trial practice, the administration of justice and the ethics of the trial profession. Qualified lawyers are called to Fellowship in the College from all branches of trial practice.
Members are carefully selected from among those who customarily represent plaintiffs in civil cases and those who customarily represent defendants, those who prosecute accused of crime and those who defend them. The college is thus able to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the legal profession and the administration of justice.
Lueck is a partner in the firm's Minneapolis office and chairs the Business Litigation group. He has also served on the firm's Executive Board since 1996. His practice focuses on financial litigation, business trial and litigation, intellectual property litigation, and antitrust and trade regulation. He is an alumnus of William Mitchell College of Law.
Being named to the list or receiving the award is not intended and should not be viewed as comparative to other lawyers or to create an expectation about results that might be achieved in a future matter.
