Beggs & Lane is proud to announce that the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers elected Ralph A. Peterson as a Fellow in the Class of 2014. Mr. Peterson is a Florida Bar Certified Labor and Employment Lawyer who is only the 45th attorney from Florida to be elected to the College since it was founded. Election as a Fellow is the highest recognition by one’s colleagues of sustained outstanding performance in the profession, exemplifying integrity, dedication, and excellence.

The nineteenth installation of Fellows will be held November 8, 2014, in Los Angeles, California, coincident with the American Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Law Section’s Continuing Legal Education Conference. With the current installation, the College is represented by more than thirteen hundred members in forty-five states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and eight provinces from Canada.

The College was established in 1995 through an initiative of the Council of The Section of Labor and Employment Law of the American Bar Association. It operates as a free standing organization recognizing those who, by long and outstanding service, have distinguished themselves as leaders in the field.
