Sergio Acosta Inducted as a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers
The U.S. law firm of Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP is very pleased to announce that Chicago-based partner Sergio Acosta has been selected to become a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers (ACTL). Acosta was one of only three Illinois lawyers selected, among 78 lawyers nationwide. The new Fellows were inducted at the 2017 ACTL Annual Meeting in Montreal, Canada, September 21, 2017.
The ACTL is composed of preeminent members of the trial bar from the United States and Canada and is recognized as the leading trial lawyers' organization in both countries. Fellowship is extended by invitation only to practiced trial lawyers of diverse backgrounds whose careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility and collegiality. Additionally, lawyers must have a minimum of 15 years of litigation experience to be considered for Fellowship, and membership cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyer population in any state or province.
Acosta serves as the national leader of Hinshaw's Government Practice Group. He represents companies, government entities and individuals in high-stakes matters involving the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, health care fraud, complex financial fraud, criminal tax violations, export regulations and criminal and civil forfeiture. His practice also encompasses corporate governance, corporate internal investigations, regulatory enforcement, commercial litigation and gaming law. Earlier this year, Acosta was named one of the 50 Most Influential Latinos in the Chicago Area by Negocios Now.
