Jean-Pierre Sheppard Named Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America

RSS is very pleased to announce that Jean-Pierre Sheppard, from our Civil and Commercial Litigation Group, has been admitted as a Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America.

The Counsel is comprised of litigators from the United States and Canada, allowing them to exchange ideas and contribute to their professional development. Membership is limited to 3,500 members: less than 0.5% of the lawyers in each country. Membership is by invitation only, which follows a careful examination of each candidate’s achievements before the courts and ethics. Less than 30 Quebec lawyers have qualified, including Charles E. Flam and Patrick Henry, and now, Jean-Pierre.

Andrew Penhale, CEO, is pleased with this nomination. “Jean-Pierre is both a model and an inspiration for litigators, in our firm as well as with fellow lawyers in other firms. His competence, his ethics, his capacity to bring disputes to a satisfactory ending for the client make him an exceptional lawyer. The Counsel made the right decision in admitting him.”
