Shook’s Los Angeles office provides our clients additional coverage and capabilities in California, a key market with continued and emerging regulatory and litigation challenges. “We look forward to helping our industry-trailblazing clients tackle the most challenging legal questions facing their businesses today,” says Managing Partner Michael Mallow. “Our team offers Shook’s nationwide network of clients a strategic defense with deep roots in California venues, where, according to some commentators, more than half of all consumer class actions are filed.” 

Shook Los Angeles attorneys are invested in their home community. We have the best of both worlds: a close and collegial office team, with the integrated resources and capacity of a global firm. With a network of offices across the U.S. and the United Kingdom, our clients benefit from experienced representation able to act in multiple jurisdictions. 

Our attorneys provide industry-leading representation of auto manufacturers and distributors, as well as companies in consumer products, energy, food and beverage, dietary supplements, retail, technology and telecommunications. We handle matters involving product defects, marketing and advertising claims, design and construction, banking and financial services, autonomous vehicles and other connected technologies, apparel, fashion, furniture and home goods, employment, cybersecurity and intellectual property. 

Shook Los Angeles also handles a wide range of state and federal regulatory matters, like those filed under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), California’s Consumer Invasion of Privacy Act (CIPA) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). The group’s combined experience defending privacy class actions complements Shook’s emergence as the leading defense firm in the country for Fortune 500 companies defending against class actions brought under state biometric privacy laws.

Our attorneys have been honored by Chambers USA, The Legal 500 United States, Law360, BTI Consulting Group and Southern California Super Lawyers.

Shook Los Angeles opened in April 2019 in Century City, just south of Santa Monica Boulevard in the Century Plaza Towers. On May 31, 2024, the office moved to its new location on the Avenue of the Stars.
