Osler congratulates partner Roger Gillott for being made a Fellow of the Construction Lawyers Society of America (CLSA).

The society is dedicated to promoting advocacy and ethical standards in construction law and has an exclusive membership of 1,200 practising Fellows from the U.S. and across the globe.
Fellows are selected based upon excellence and accomplishment in construction law and closely related specialties, from the transactional level to trial and appellate levels, as well as for their superior ethical reputation. According to the CLSA website, Fellowship selections are made based on a combination of Fellow input, internal research, nominations by Fellows, attorney opinions, evaluation of client selection of counsel, limited input from acting and retired judges, and reviews of acknowledgement and recognition by other peer reviewing resources and associations.
