Litigation Group Makes the Move to Shook

Shook, Hardy & Bacon welcomes to the firm four partners who bring a wealth of trial acumen and strategic litigation experience for a combined 100+ years of client success and complex problem-solving in the courtroom and in the boardroom. They are known for achieving defense verdicts and limiting potential liability for Fortune 100 companies in complex trial, appellate and litigation disputes. Together, the four represent name brand consumer product manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies, along with technology, internet and software businesses.

We are excited to have them with us, and we are already getting requests from clients who know these lawyers and appreciate even greater depth and breadth in service,” said Shook Chair Madeleine McDonough.

Weisburd from Los Angeles. “Shook’s powerhouse offerings, including product liability and class action, fall right in our wheelhouse. I’m excited to be part of this nationwide highly respected team.
