Silverman Receives Outstanding Research Award From Institute for Legal Reform

The U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform (ILR) has presented its 2020 Outstanding Research Award to Shook Partner Cary Silverman.

Silverman has significantly contributed to the ILR’s research program, publishing a dozen papers with the organization in recent years. His research spans issues including mass tort lawsuit advertising, food class action litigation, and the liability implications of emerging technologies. He has also coauthored a guide for policymakers, 101 Ways to Improve State Legal Systems, now in its sixth edition.

Silverman is a partner in the firm’s Public Policy Group and also serves as an adjunct professor at The George Washington University Law School.

Silverman received the award at the ILR’s annual summit, which gathers top legal minds, business and industry leaders, government officials and the media to explore pressing legal topics and their influence on the global business community. The event was held virtually this year.
