Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 12, 2012
Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP, today announced that Kerrie L. Campbell, litigation partner and chair of the firm’s Consumer Product Safety Practice, has been selected as Fellow of the Litigation Counsel of America (LCA), a trial lawyer honorary society whose membership is limited to less than one-half of one percent of American lawyers. An induction ceremony will be held on October 25, 2012.
Fellowship in the LCA is highly selective and by invitation only. Washington, D.C.'s LCA Fellow delegation is limited to about 50 lawyers, judges and/or law professors. Fellows are selected based on excellence and accomplishment in litigation, both at the trial and appellate levels, and superior ethical reputation.
One of the leading reputation protection lawyers in America, Campbell has over 20 years of litigation experience, focused primarily on libel, commercial speech and First Amendment matters in both trial and appellate courts. She has successfully represented private and public figures in high-profile cases, including G. Gordon Liddy, Deepak Chopra, Mark Felt, Sr. (“Deep Throat”) and Lt. Colonel Martha McSally (the first woman to command a U.S. Air Force Fighter Squadron).
“This is an extraordinary and well-deserved honor,” said Chad Hummel, chair of Manatt’s National Litigation Division. “Kerrie has earned this recognition by achieving a truly remarkable string of successes for her clients, who consistently praise her passionate advocacy, incredible instincts, and spot-on, strategic advice.”
Campbell also focuses on consumer product safety and advertising matters, successfully representing companies in disputes referred to the U.S. Department of Justice by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, as well as Federal Trade Commission and Lanham Act litigation. She has been selected by her peers as one of “The Best Lawyers in America” for First Amendment litigation and maintains the top rating for lawyers (“AV”) with Martindale-Hubbell.
Campbell is a member of the Advisory Board for Bloomberg BNA’s Product Safety and Liability Reporter and has been granted two U.S. patents as inventor of an electrical safety adaptor.
