Baker Donelson's Edward Meyerson Recognized with Lifetime Achievement Award


Baker Donelson is pleased to announce that Edward P. Meyerson has been recognized with the inaugural Edward P. Meyerson Lifetime Achievement Award by the Construction Lawyers Society of America (CLSA).

The award, named after Mr. Meyerson for his contributions to the practice of construction law, recognizes excellence and commitment at the highest level over the career of a deserving lawyer practicing in the area of construction law and is designed to honor visionaries who have created constituencies and inspired, mobilized and/or unified others in expanding and developing the specialty of construction law within the justice system in furtherance of the common good. Recipients are those whose leadership has had a national or international impact, who practice the art of advocacy at a preeminent standing and who are committed to those they represent in the pursuits to which they are assigned.

Mr. Meyerson, a shareholder in Baker Donelson's Birmingham office, was described by the CLSA as "a pioneer in the area of construction law throughout his career and a leader in development of the specialty in both practice and activities among associations and societies devoted to construction law. He serves as Life Dean and Senior Fellow Emeritus of the CLSA and serves on its Advisory Board. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Construction Lawyers and has served on its Board of Directors."

A 2012 recipient of the American Subcontractors Association of Alabama Lifetime Achievement Award, Mr. Meyerson has served as an Adjunct Professor of construction law at the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University and is a member of the American Arbitration Association and the National Panel of Arbitrators and Mediators of the AAA. He has served on the Steering Committee Board of the American Bar Association Forum on Construction and is a member of the Board of Bar Commissioners for Alabama's Tenth Judicial Circuit.

The CLSA is an invitation-only international honorary group comprised of construction lawyers, including surety, appellate and ADR specialists. Fellows are selected based on an evaluation process to ensure effectiveness and accomplishment in construction law, along with ethical reputation. The CLSA is dedicated to promoting superior advocacy and ethical standards in construction law, providing resources for professional development and assisting in community involvement by its members.
