Christopher Weld Jr. was inducted as a Fellow into the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in North America, at its annual meeting held recently in Montreal.
Mr. Weld, a Founding Partner of Todd & Weld LLP, has over 30 years of experience in business litigation matters that frequently involve issues of substantial value. A 1981 magna cum laude graduate of Boston College Law School, Mr. Weld serves as the firm's Managing Partner.
He joins three other Todd & Weld attorneys – David Meier, Max D. Stern and J. Owen Todd – who have been inducted into the College.
Fellowship in the College, which was founded in 1950, is by invitation only following a careful evaluation. The College is composed of the best of the trial bar from the Unites States and Canada, and membership cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province.
The College is currently comprised of about 5,800 members, including active Fellows, Emeritus Fellows, Judicial Fellows (those who ascended to the bench after their induction), and Honorary Fellows.
The professional careers of members are marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility and collegiality. Lawyers must have a minimum of 15 years of trial experience before they can be considered for Fellowship.
