Shook International Climbs Again in Legal 500 UK

The Legal 500 UK has ranked Shook, Hardy & Bacon International among the top 12 law firms in London in Product Liability - Defendant practice in 2018. The Legal 500 analyzes the capabilities of law firms across the world, ranking Shook in Band 2, a move up from Band 3 in 2017. Feedback from 300,000 clients worldwide, law firm submissions and interviews with leading private practice lawyers is used to determine the rankings. 

Simon Castley, who leads the London office, and Solicitor Alison Newstead were recognized as Leading Individuals in Product Liability - Defense, in a category where only 19 lawyers were selected.

“We have a great interest in the technicalities of our clients’ business–knowing the details of their products and practices allows us to target our advice to the exact issues with which they need help,” said Castley. 

“Each matter arises out of a unique set of facts and in a particular commercial context. Working together with a client to understand how their ultimate goal can be achieved in light of these factors is key,” said Newstead.

Shook London attorneys primarily focus on the areas of product liability, health and safety, and commercial litigation and collaborate with the firm’s global product liability practice.
