Who’s Who Legal: The International Who’s Who of Business Lawyers has named 31 Shook, Hardy & Bacon attorneys to its 2016 Who’s Who Legal 100 list. The guide covers “the best law firms within 11 distinct practice area groupings” based on global research and features more than 250 law firms in total. Shook is noted as a “top 25” firm within the “Dispute Resolution” category.

Its 2016 publication says this: “Shook Hardy is known for its work defending the interests of some of the world’s largest multinationals. Clients celebrate the firm’s ‘adaptive approach’ that plays a key role in the formulation of case-winning strategies.”

Who’s Who Legal 100 shared client impressions about three Shook partners:

In the firm’s D.C. office, Madeleine McDonough leads the firm’s pharmaceutical and medical device litigation practice. She has represented clients across a host of industries including pharmaceutical, animal health, medical device, food, cosmetic and beverage. She is well known for her creative and intuitive approach to cases that regularly sees her outfox her opponents.

Michelle Fujimoto is “a towering figure in the product liability defense bar”. Known for her work in the pharmaceuticals and medical devices sectors, she has “wide-ranging experience” having represented the pharmaceutical manufacturers of therapeutics, hormone therapies, contraceptives, dietary drugs, immunosuppressants, smoking cessation and obesity therapies, allergy medications, anti-depressants and anti-inflammatories. She is known for her “strong preparatory work”; according to clients, “she goes above and beyond in order to ensure that all bases are covered come litigation time”.

Scott Sayler comes highly commended for his work inside and outside of the courtroom with clients praising both his advocacy and negotiating styles. He is enormously experienced having acted in several hundred class action product liability cases.
