March 4, 2024

Minneapolis Lawyer Chris Larus

Christopher Larus, a partner at Robins Kaplan LLP, has become a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in North America.

The induction ceremony took place during the recent 2024 Spring Meeting of the College in Phoenix, Arizona.

Founded in 1950, the College is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only and only after careful investigation, to those experienced trial lawyers of diverse backgrounds, 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 5,800 members in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico, including active Fellows, Emeritus Fellows, Judicial Fellows (those who ascended to the bench after their induction) and Honorary Fellows. The College maintains and seeks to improve the standards of trial practice, professionalism, ethics and the administration of justice through education and public statements on independence of the judiciary, trial by jury, respect for the rule of law, access to justice and fair and just representation of all parties to legal proceedings. The College is thus able to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the legal profession and the administration of justice.

Larus is a Partner with Robins Kaplan LLP and Chair of the firm’s national Intellectual Property & Technology Litigation practice.  For more than 25 years, he has tried complex patent, trade secret, copyright, trademark and licensing cases, representing both plaintiffs and defendants in courts throughout the country.  The newly inducted Fellow is an alumnus of the University of Minnesota Law School.
