If readers will permit a little bragging, I am excited to note that 44 Shook, Hardy & Bacon attorneys nationwide have been selected by their peers for inclusion in the 2014 edition of The Best Lawyers in America®.

The group includes my partners Walt Cofer (Product Liability Litigation – Defendants); Michelle Fujimoto (Product Liability – Defendants); Bill Geraghty (Product Liability Litigation – Defendants; and Tammy Webb (Product Liability Litigation – Defendants); as well as your humble blogger for Mass Tort Litigation/Class Actions – Defendants and the category of Product Liability Litigation – Defendants.

In addition six SHB partners in Kansas City have been named Best Lawyers® 2014 “Lawyers of the Year.”  That list includes Rob Adams for Personal Injury Litigation – Defendants.

Of course, all these kinds of honors stem from the valued clients who give us an opportunity to work on some of their most challenging matters.
