Janet P. Jakubowicz Inducted into the Fellowship of the Litigation Counsel of America
Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP partner Janet P. Jakubowicz has been selected as a Fellow and invited into the Fellowship of the Litigation Counsel of America after being evaluated for effectiveness and accomplishment in litigation and trial work, along with ethical reputation.
The Litigation Counsel of America is an invitation-only trial lawyer honorary society established to reflect the new face of the American bar. Membership is limited to 3,500 Fellows, representing less than one-half of one percent of American lawyers. The composition of the LCA is aggressively diverse, with recognition of excellence among American litigation and trial counsel across all segments of the bar.
Jakubowicz is chair of the firm’s Partnership Board and focuses her practice on business and commercial litigation. She has served as past president of the Louisville Bar Association and president of Louis D. Brandeis American Inn of Court. Janet is a member of the Kentucky Defense Trial Lawyers Association and has been named among the top 250 women in Litigation for four consecutive years by Benchmark Litigation.
The LCA’s selection process is a combination of Fellow input, internal research, nominations by Fellows, attorney opinions, evaluation of client selection of counsel, limited input from active and retired judges, and reviews of acknowledgement and recognition by other peer reviewing sources and associations. The criteria used for selection is not based purely on the number of cases tried, or the notoriety usually associated with frequent court appearances, but also effectiveness in the area of a particular lawyer’s expertise.
The purpose of the LCA is to recognize deserving, experienced, and highly qualified lawyers, to provide an outlet for scholarly authorship of legal articles on trial and litigation practice, to provide additional sources for professional development, to promote superior advocacy and ethical standards in the practice of law, to assist in community involvement by its membership, and to advance a superior judiciary, by taking relevant positions on issues or legislation affecting judicial compensation and/or benefits, as well as those affecting the American litigation processes.
Please join the firm in congratulating Janet on her esteemed induction into the Litigation Counsel of America.
