Williams & Connolly partner Rob Cary has become a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in North America.

The induction ceremony took place before an audience of approximately 570 persons during the recent 2016 Spring Meeting of the College in Maui, Hawaii. During the ceremony, Cary delivered the induction speech on behalf of the forty-nine new Fellows. His speech was recently published in the summer issue of the ACTL Journal.
