Vancouver (May 9, 2018) — Leadership is defined by influence and experience. BLG is proud to announce that another member of our Firm has been recognized for personifying these qualities: Robert J.C. Deane has been invited to join the elite fellowship of the Litigation Counsel of America

Recognized nationwide and internationally as one of the top practitioners in his field, Mr. Deane is highly respected by his clients and his colleagues within the Firm. As the leader of the Firm’s International Trade and Arbitration Group, Robert quarterbacks a team of some of the most effective legal minds in Canada.

The Litigation Counsel of America ("LCA") is an invitation-only, diverse, peer-selected honorary society of the best litigators in North America. Less than half of one per cent of North American lawyers, judges and scholars are included in the fellowship, whose purpose is to recognize deserving, experienced and highly qualified legal practitioners and to provide additional sources for professional development, community involvement and the promotion of ethical standards in the practice of law. Fellows are selected following a detailed assessment of their effectiveness and accomplishments in litigation, and their ethical reputation.

We are proud to have Robert join the six other members of BLG who have been recognized within this exclusive fellowship.
