JD Supra 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards selected Shook, Hardy & Bacon as the “Top Firm for Food & Beverage” news. Shook was chosen from a crowded field of more than 50,000 authors whose work was published on the site last year. Shook was recognized for the second consecutive year, 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.
Shook Partner Mark Anstoetter was ranked first among the “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. Anstoetter was noted in a subsequent article, “5 Takeaways For Authors from JD Supra’s 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards.” The article included the Food & Beverage Litigation Update as a “feature readers can count on.”
Shook Firm Chair Madeleine McDonough and Anstoetter were also ranked in the Top 5, for the second year, as “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.”
In addition, Shook’s Cloud IPQ articles were selected among JD Supra’s most popular patent reads in 2018.
