Thompson Coburn partner Nick Lamb has been admitted to the American College of Trial Lawyers, a select professional association of attorneys from the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.
Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only to those experienced trial lawyers of diverse backgrounds, and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility and collegiality. Lawyers must have a minimum of 15 years trial experience before they can be considered for Fellowship. Membership in the College cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province.
“I’m honored and humbled to join Thompson Coburn icons like previous inductees Jack Musgrave and David Wells in the American College,” Nick said. “I look forward to continuing to represent our Firm’s clients zealously and ethically in courtrooms across the country.”
Nick was inducted on Saturday, February 25, at the spring meeting of the American College of Trial Lawyers at the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne. Speakers at the meeting included former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, among others.
Nick represents clients in all types of civil litigation, including commercial litigation, class action and personal injury defense. Nick has served as lead counsel for major corporations in high-exposure cases in Missouri and Illinois state and federal courts, including venues considered plaintiff friendly, such as the City of St. Louis, and in other federal and state courts throughout the country. He has secured jury verdicts, summary judgments, favorable settlements and appellate victories in numerous cases involving alcohol distribution, FELA, health care, product liability, employment, class action, patent infringement and business litigation issues.
From 2007-2023, Nick has been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® (by BL Rankings). In the 2021 edition, he was named St. Louis Lawyer of the Year for Railroad Law.
