Shook Announces New Office Managing Partners

Shook announces key leadership additions or changes to three of the firm’s 17 locations.  In 2021, the firm launched New York and St. Louis offices to better serve clients’ needs in the pharmaceutical and medical device, and environmental industries. Partner Adam Miller, an environmental and toxic tort litigator, will lead the firm’s new St. Louis office, and Partner Scott Chesin, an appellate litigator and strategist, will oversee the New York location. Chicago Partner Amy Cho, business litigator, will take the reins from longtime, successful office managing partner Lynn Murray.

“We are experiencing an exciting time of growth and change. In addition to a deep understanding of the law, each of these partners has demonstrated a strong commitment to client service,” said Shook Chair Madeleine McDonough, who was just re-elected for a second, five-year term beginning in 2022. “I’m confident Amy, Adam and Scott will do great things for their offices and the firm, and I look forward to working with them closely.”

The new office managing partners are as follows:

  • Chicago – Amy Cho;
  • New York City – Scott Chesin; and
  • St. Louis – Adam Miller.
