Shook, Hardy & Bacon is pleased to announce that Partner Daniel Rogers will lead the Miami office effective Feb. 1, 2020. Rogers, who has successfully represented global manufacturers and companies in matters across the country, has been a part of Shook since he completed his two judicial clerkships nearly 20 years ago.
“When Shook Chair Madeleine McDonough asked me to lead the Miami office, I was humbled,” said Rogers. “Shook is like home to me. I care deeply about the people and the firm and take great pride in our efforts to protect and advance the interests of our amazing clients. As a Magic City native, I strive to continue building upon Shook Miami’s high-calibre legal advocacy and cement its role as the preeminent trial and litigation firm both locally and nationwide.”
Rogers has a diverse practice representing individuals and companies in all types of civil litigation across a variety of industries. His experience focuses on defending class actions, business and product liability disputes and appellate matters. Rogers has argued more than 50 appeals, in Florida and courts across the country, and is a Board Certified Specialist in Appellate Practice.
“Looking forward, I plan to reinforce Shook Miami’s reputation as the go-to firm for high-stakes civil disputes and trial work, while also expanding in key areas, such as complex commercial litigation, environmental and toxic tort, and data privacy,” said Rogers.
In addition, with a stellar reputation in trial and appellate advocacy, the Florida Supreme Court has appointed Rogers to serve multiple terms on the Florida Standard Jury Instructions Committee (Civil) and recently named him the committee’s vice chair for 2020.
“Proper jury instructions are fundamental to the rule of law and our judicial system, helping ensure all parties receive a fair and impartial trial. I’m honored to further this committee’s important work and take on this new leadership role,” said Rogers, who has been active with the committee for a decade.
