Science-Driven Lawyers Launch Shook New York

Expanding its strong bench of litigators based in the Northeast, Shook, Hardy & Bacon announces the addition of a New York office to complement its presence in Boston, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. The firm welcomes two new partners, Kimberly Penner and Thomas Sheehan, who focus primarily on high-stakes product liability litigation in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries, among other areas. 

“We’ve had our eye on New York for some time because so many of our clients are based there,” stated Shook Chair Madeleine McDonough, who divides her time between Washington, D.C. and Kansas City. “With offices in Boston, Philadelphia and D.C., the decision to expand into Manhattan is a natural progression. We searched for the right attorneys to better serve clients and align with our firm culture, and we have found them with this pair.”
