Morrison Mahoney is pleased to announce today that partner Thomas Anderson, a partner in the firm’s Hartford, CT, office, has been named a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in North America.
Tom, who focuses his practice on the defense of medical malpractice, professional liability and other complex litigation, was formally inducted into the College in front of approximately 600 people at the College’s 2017 Spring meeting in Boca Raton, Florida.
Composed of the best trial attorneys from the United States and Canada, the American College of Trial Lawyers maintains and seeks to improve the standards of trial practice, professionalism, ethics, and the administration of justice through education and public statements on important legal issues relating to its mission. Fellowship in the College is extremely exclusive, and may not exceed one percent of licensed attorneys within any state or province. Admission is extended only after careful investigation into a nominee’s accomplishments, personal integrity, ethics, collegiality and community standing, including input from fellow attorneys and judges before whom he or she has tried cases.
“Tom is certainly deserving of this honor,” said Scott D. Burke, Managing Partner of Morrison Mahoney LLP. “He is a highly regarded trial lawyer in Connecticut, known for trying complex, high exposure cases, especially in the area of medical malpractice.”
There are currently approximately 5,800 American College of Trial Lawyers members in the United States and Canada, including active fellows, emeritus fellows, judicial fellows (those who ascended to the bench after their induction) and honorary fellows.
