Farella Braun + Martel Partner Douglas R. Young Inducted Into The International Academy Of Trial Lawyers
SAN FRANCISCO, June 2, 2009: Farella Braun + Martel Partner Douglas R. Young was recently inducted as a Fellow into the International Academy of Trial Lawyers at the Academy's Annual Meeting held in Atlanta, Ga.
The International Academy of Trial Lawyers limits membership to 500 Fellows from the United States. The Academy seeks out, identifies, acknowledges and honors those who have achieved a career of excellence through demonstrated skill and ability in jury trials, trials before the court and appellate practice. Members are engaged in civil practice on both the plaintiff's and the defendant's side of the courtroom, and the trial of criminal cases. The Academy invites only lawyers who have attained the highest level of advocacy. A comprehensive screening process identifies the most distinguished members of the trial bar by means of both peer and judicial review. Young had been evaluated by his colleagues and the judges in his jurisdiction and had been highly recommended by them as possessing these qualifications and characteristics.
Young is a nationally recognized attorney whose practice involves trials and appeals in federal and state courts throughout the U.S. His practice encompasses white collar defense and parallel civil and regulatory proceedings, intellectual property, securities and antitrust (including in both areas significant class action work), unfair competition, and the First Amendment.
In addition to the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, Young has earned Fellowships in the American College of Trial Lawyers and the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers. A Master of the McFetridge American Inn of Court, he is also a member of the American Law Institute, the American Judicature Society, and a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation. Young has served as president of the Bar Association of San Francisco and of the Northern California Chapter of the Association of Business Trial Lawyers. He is consistently listed in The Best Lawyers in America, Chambers USA Guide, Northern California Super Lawyers and Who's Who Legal.
Young earned his J.D. from University of California, Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall) and his B.A., cum laude, from Yale University.
