Adam’s practice is focused on discovery strategies and mass tort litigation; he also works with Shook’s Public Policy Group, whose aim is to improve civil litigation through judicial education, communications and legal scholarship. Before graduating from Syracuse University College of Law, Adam worked with Shook attorneys on researching, writing and publishing articles and practice materials on discovery.

Adam volunteers with The Electronic Discovery Institute, a nonprofit organization that studies litigation processes and produces educational programs for the benefit of the federal and state judiciary. For the last two years, he spearheaded EDI’s Spoliation Guide, a 50-state case survey intended to aid practitioners who need more information than they can find in a case law primer, whether to prepare for a strategy session with outside counsel or a client or a meet-and-confer with an adversary.
