Shook, Hardy & Bacon Chair Madeleine McDonough was featured by the Kansas City Business Journal in the article titled “Power 100: Madeleine McDonough.” The Power 100 list consists of the most influential people in the business community.
The article states that “Madeleine McDonough started her five-year term in January 2017, leading the area’s largest law firm. She worked her way up through the ranks at Shook Hardy & Bacon, where she has worked her entire legal career and has led three of the firm’s practices.
The former clinical pharmacist will have to prescribe just the right doses at just the right times as her industry adapts to changes in the supply of young lawyers and clients’ evolving expectations regarding billing.
Although McDonough shies away from talking about herself as a woman leader, the fact remains that her presence atop such a prominent local and national firm provides empowerment.”
