What does "caliber and standing" mean (2nd paragraph) mean?

Context>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Trump’s habit of making seemingly spontaneous, high-profile pardons has led to speculation Cohen may be seeking the same. Among those whom Trump has pardoned so far are the rightwing fireband Dinesh D’Souza; discriminatory Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio; and former Dick Cheney aide Lewis “Scooter” Libby.

There is, however, good reason to believe Cohen is not looking for a pardon. Legal analysts say gambling on a pardon would be a wild strategy for a lawyer of Petrillo’s caliber and standing. And Cohen could face criminal charges brought by the state of New York or another state that Trump would be powerless to pardon, as the constitution states the president may only pardon federal crimes. So a pardon might not keep Cohen out of prison.
