The Daily Business Review has selected Shook Partner Bill Geraghty among its honorees for the Distinguished Leader Award.
The Miami partner co-leads the country’s largest Product Liability Litigation (PLL) practice and with his trial and business acumen, helps bring in clients and victories in the courtroom. The accolades get noticed. In late 2022, ALM selected Bill’s group as its “Regional Litigation Department of the Year – Florida” after multiple defense verdicts during a tough year fraught with delays due to the pandemic. The product team continues to score major victories in court including a win for Geraghty at a trial in the Northeast in January 2023.
Under Geraghty’s leadership, and working with others, Shook opened New York and Hartford offices in the last 18 months with science-driven lawyers expanding the capabilities and presence of the PLL practice. As managing partner, he was also instrumental in the development of the Miami office, which opened more than 20 years ago.
Geraghty is an accomplished trial lawyer whose experience ranges from commercial and business disputes to product liability. He has won defense verdicts throughout the state of Florida, including Miami, Fort Lauderdale, St. Petersburg, and Jacksonville. His work as lead counsel has focused on fighting compensatory and punitive damages claims in product liability litigation. He has also served on Shook’s executive committee, which helped to guide strategy, growth and priorities of the firm.
Geraghty and the other honorees will be recognized at an event which will be held on May 17th at the JW Marriott Marquis in Miami.
