Shook’s New York office expanded by welcoming a group of automotive litigators in 2023. This group includes Partners Michael Gallub, Homer Ramsey and Brian Carr.

Gallub and Carr also have a robust environmental practice and Ramsey serves as regional product liability counsel for medical implant companies.  The group includes a total of three partners, three senior counsel and one counsel.

Shook opened its New York office in 2021. The expansion to New York expanded the firm’s strong bench of litigators in the Northeast. This addition allows the firm to serve its health, science and technology clients from 18 distinct markets. “When we started the New York office two years ago,” says Office Managing Partner Scott Chesin, “we had two lawyers. One year later, we had six, and now, with the addition of Michael, Homer, and their team, we’ve grown to 18 New York litigators. It’s literally exponential growth.”

The New York Law Journal, Law 360, Bloomberg and Reuters covered the addition of the group to Shook.
