Jim King, a partner at Porter Wright, was inducted into the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers during the College’s 2020 Annual Meeting, which was held virtually September 23 to 25, 2020.
The College is composed of the best of the trial bar from the U.S. and Canada. Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation-only and only after careful investigation to those experienced trial lawyers of diverse professional backgrounds—civil and criminal, plaintiff, prosecution, and defense--who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility, and collegiality. Membership in the college cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province and is, in fact, substantially less.
“We are incredibly proud of Jim for his stellar trial advocacy, his steady leadership in the firm, and his ongoing and many contributions to the profession,” said Jim Curphey, Chair of Porter Wright’s Litigation Department and a member of the College’s State Committee in Ohio. “With his tremendous talents in the courtroom, and commitment to professionalism, civility, and collegiality within the bar, Jim sets quite a standard for rising trial lawyers.”
King made national news and legal headlines over the past several years for his work on landmark federal antitrust cases, in which King and the trial team secured two complete defense verdicts in separate bet-the-company trials over a 12 week span in federal court in Philadelphia.
King serves as Co-Chair of the firm’s Corporate & Internal Investigations practice and is an alumnus of the University of Michigan, and The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law.
