Shook, Hardy & Bacon has been named the “Top Firm for Food & Beverage” news in the JD Supra 2018 Readers Choice Awards, chosen by readers from more than 50,000 authors whose work was published on the site last year. Shook was recognized for insights and commentary in the Food and Beverage Litigation Update, achieving the “highest visibility and engagement for their particular expertise” in the practice area. The legal news site’s readers chose ten top authors and one top firm in each of 26 categories, as well as eight individual authors on emerging legal topics.
Firm Chair Madeleine McDonough and Partner Mark Anstoetter were ranked first and second “Top Authors” in Food & Beverage. According to JD Supra, honorees were selected for their coverage of “topics at the intersection of food, beverages, and the law,” including FDA labeling, risk mitigation, trademark protection and export issues.
McDonough also was ranked second in “Top Authors” in the Class Action category, where contributors were recognized for “addressing reader interest in data breaches, the CFPB arbitration rule, class certification and related matters.”
