Drug and Device Litigator Joins Shook’s Product Liability Team

Shook, Hardy & Bacon welcomes drug and device litigator Lisa Oliver White to the firm as partner. White will join Shook’s world renowned Product Liability Litigation Practice and focus primarily on drug and device litigation. She has a longstanding relationship with Shook, having been on trial teams with the firm’s trial lawyers on multiple product liability litigation matters in Massachusetts.

“We’re excited to bring Lisa to Shook,” said Trial Partner Hildy Sastre from Miami, co-chair of the firm’s product liability litigation team. “We’ve collaborated with Lisa a number of times as our local counsel in Boston. Her trial skills align well with the firm. It’s a natural fit.”

White brings 18 years of litigation experience in Massachusetts and Rhode Island state and federal courts, and her practice focuses on serving clients in medical malpractice and drug and device law matters. She is a member of the invitation–only International Association of Defense Counsel (IADC) and serves on the board of the Massachusetts Defense Lawyers Association (MassDLA).

“Truly, it is a natural transition in my career to move to Shook,” said White from Boston. “The firm’s reputation of having hardworking and very smart lawyers who get along well with opposing counsel in complex matters, cannot be overstated. I have a similar way of litigating and look forward to collaborating with this dynamic team again.”
