The team of 23 Shook trial attorneys from around the country will represent companies and individuals in criminal, civil and regulatory government enforcement actions at both the state and federal levels.

Partner Bill Corrigan will co-lead the practice with Partner Patrick Oot, a Washington, D.C., litigator who served in the Securities and Exchange Commission and is a co-founder of the Government Investigations and Civil Litigation Institute and editor-in-chief of The General Counsel’s Guide to Government Investigations.
