Shook Philadelphia is home to a team of lawyers with local, regional and national practices, representing clients based in the tristate region as well as national clients with matters venued here.
Since 2012, our attorneys have represented companies in a wide range of industries, including pharmaceutical and medical device, food and beverage, banking and financial services, bankruptcy and creditors’ rights, insurance and reinsurance, life sciences and biotechnology, and design and construction. We handle matters in product liability, business litigation, commercial recoveries, class action and complex litigation, FDA and regulatory guidance, toxic tort and exposure, FDA and regulatory guidance, employment litigation and policy, white collar defense and government investigations, real estate and eDiscovery.
Our Philadelphia attorneys bring a wealth of experience from a wide range of previous positions, including as an assistant U.S. attorney, an associate general counsel for recovery and bankruptcy for one of the world’s largest insurance companies and a health care analyst for the Government Accounting Office (GAO).
Shook Philadelphia’s growing reputation recognition includes accolades for our product liability and mass tort litigation practice from Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business. Our attorneys are consistently ranked among Pennsylvania’s best practitioners in numerous practice areas; The Best Lawyers in America and The Legal 500 United States have recognized Shook Philadelphia attorneys for product liability and mass tort defense in the areas of toxic tort and consumer products. Our attorneys also have been honored by Pennsylvania Super Lawyers, Who’s Who Legal, LMG Life Sciences and The Legal Intelligencer, and have been named “Top Rated Lawyers” in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey and among the “40 Under 40” by the American Bankruptcy Institute.
While some firms open offices in new geographic markets by transplanting groups of lawyers, most of Shook’s Philadelphia team members have local roots in the Delaware Valley. We have the best of both worlds: a close and collegial office, with the integrated resources and capacity of a global firm.
The team’s commitment to the Philadelphia community is also demonstrated in the civic activities of the attorneys, who volunteer with many local organizations, including the National Kidney Foundation–Delaware Valley Chapter; Big Brothers Big Sisters; Chester School of the Arts; Juvenile Justice Alliance; the Prisoner Civil Rights Program of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania; Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts; Bethesda Project; Support Center for Child Advocates; Undine Barge Club; Breakthrough America; OIC Philadelphia; and Philadelphia Academies.
