Orlando, FLA. (July 17, 2018)- Broad and Cassel LLP, which will combine with Nelson Mullins on Aug. 1, today announced Orlando Partner Michael K. Wilson has been selected as a Fellow of the Construction Lawyers Society of America.
Board certified in Construction Law by The Florida Bar, Wilson has practiced exclusively in construction law and litigation for more than 25 years.
Earlier this year, Wilson was recognized by prominent legal guide Chambers USA: A Guide to America’s Leading Business Lawyers with a Band One ranking, the highest ranking awarded by Chambers USA, in Florida for his construction practice. Sources identify him as “knowledgeable in construction law and a very good litigator” as well as “exceptionally detail-oriented and adept at summarizing complex construction subject matter to non-engineers.”
In 2005, he was selected by the president of The Florida Bar as one of nine construction lawyers to write the first examination for certification of lawyers in construction law.
