Saul Ewing Partner Michelle Lipkowitz’s Construction Experience Recognized with Fellowship from ABA Forum on The Construction Industry
Saul Ewing LLP announced today that Michelle N. Lipkowitz, a partner in the firm’s Litigation Practice, has been named a 2013 Fellow by the American Bar Association Forum on the Construction Industry. She is one of only four attorneys nationwide to receive this highly competitive three-year fellowship.
With 6,000 members from a variety of practice areas, the Forum is the largest organization of construction lawyers from the United States and abroad. Its mission is to serve the construction industry through education and leadership.
Receiving the fellowship will ensure Lipkowitz has access to the Forum’s key educational meetings. These events are designed to keep attorneys abreast of issues and developments that their clients in the construction industry are facing and provide insight into how these trends intersect with the legal issues they handle for construction company owners, design professionals, general contractors and others in the industry. Attending these events will enhance Lipkowitz’s already extensive knowledge of the construction field from her experience handling complex commercial litigation involving construction and many other industries.
The goal of the fellowship is to diversify the ranks of the Forum, particularly with women and minority construction lawyers.
In addition to construction litigation, Lipkowitz has experience with litigation involving contractual disputes, shareholder disputes, consumer class actions, mortgage fraud, lender liability and products liability. She handles cases in various state and federal courts throughout Maryland and across the country for clients from a broad range of industries, including financial, retail and telecommunications. Lipkowitz is based in Saul Ewing’s Baltimore office.
