Varnum litigation attorney Perrin Rynders was recently accepted into the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA). Rynders was voted in at the recent National Board meeting in Whistler, B.C., Canada.
Rynders is a first-chair trial lawyer and leads the Litigation and Trial Practice team at Varnum. His legal expertise revolves around high-value claims and disputes that often reach multimillion-dollar magnitudes. His extensive experience in the courtroom includes more than 30 jury and bench trials in both federal and state courts across the nation. Additionally, he has skillfully handled contested cases before arbitration panels and administrative tribunals.
To be eligible for membership in ABOTA, trial lawyers must be of high personal character and honorable reputation and be a member of the Bar of state, province, district, territory or country in which they practice. Membership is by invitation only. Applicants must have tried at least 10 civil jury trials to jury verdict or hung jury as lead counsel and must be approved by the local ABOTA chapter prior to application at the national level.
The American Board of Trial Advocates was formed in 1958, dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the civil jury trial right provided by the Seventh Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
