29.05.18

BD&P is proud to announce that litigation partners Douglas McGillivray, Q.C. and Jeffrey Sharpe have been honoured by their recent selection as Fellows of the Litigation Counsel of America (LCA). Both Doug and Jeff are senior experienced litigators who have practices focused in Commercial, Construction, Energy and Securities Litigation and who have significant training in alternative dispute resolution including negotiation, mediation and arbitration.

The LCA is a trial lawyer honorary society composed of less than one-half of one percent of North American lawyers. Fellowship in the LCA is highly selective and by invitation only. Fellows are selected based upon excellence and accomplishment in litigation, both at the trial and appellate levels, and superior ethical reputation. The LCA is aggressively diverse in its composition. Established as a trial and appellate lawyer honorary society reflecting the North American bar in the twenty-first century, the LCA represents the best in law among its membership. The number of Fellowships has been kept at an exclusive limit by design, allowing qualifications, diversity and inclusion to align effectively, with recognition of excellence in litigation across all segments of the bar. Fellows are generally at the partner or shareholder level, or are independent practitioners with recognized experience and accomplishment. In addition, the LCA is dedicated to promoting superior advocacy, professionalism and ethical standards among its Fellows.
