David C. Wright III was inducted as a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers at the College's annual meeting in Vancouver, British Columbia. Wright is the fifth Robinson Bradshaw attorney to be inducted as a Fellow, joining Martin L. Brackett Jr., A. Ward McKeithen, Mark W. Merritt and John R. Wester.

The College is an invitation-only fellowship of exceptional trial lawyers of diverse backgrounds from the United States and Canada. The College thoroughly investigates each nominee for admission and selects only those who have demonstrated the very highest standards of trial advocacy, ethical conduct, integrity, professionalism and collegiality. Fellows must have a minimum of 15 years of trial experience, and membership cannot exceed 1% of a state's total lawyer population.

"I am honored to be selected as a Fellow and join this group of outstanding litigators," Wright said.

Wright's litigation practice at Robinson Bradshaw spans more than 30 years. He has significant experience representing clients in securities and ERISA class and derivative actions, corporate and regulatory investigations, employment and trade secret disputes, insurance coverage issues and product liability claims. Wright has represented the administrations of four North Carolina governors in significant and groundbreaking constitutional and statutory litigation.

Wright serves as chairman of the Morehead-Cain Foundation board of trustees. He received his law degree from the University of Virginia and earned his bachelor's degree with highest honors as a John Motley Morehead Scholar at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
