Texas Lawyer and Law.com reported on Shook’s selection of John Lewis, Jr to lead its Houston office, “Shook Hardy’s Houston Office Starts 2022 With New Leader.” Lewis joined the firm in 2019. He told the Texas Lawyer his number one goal is to expand the firm’s business litigation practice in Houston.
“The first thing is to market it internally within the firm, to grow that litigation muscle in the city,” said Lewis.
Lewis also chairs Shook’s Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and Initiatives. He told Texas Lawyer he wants to “position the Houston office as a laboratory for initiatives at the firm.”
