We are happy to note that Shook, Hardy & Bacon has been recognized as a nationally recommended firm in both litigation and intellectual property in the newly issued 2014 edition of The Legal 500 United States.

The firm was lauded for its “deep bench of trial lawyers and strong reputation for high-profile defense work across various industries,” including its defense of thousands of individual tobacco cases, multiple class actions, and multi-district litigation.

SHB was one of only three firms to receive top-tier recognition in the guide’s product liability: consumer products section, and one of six to receive a top-tier ranking in the pharmaceuticals and medical devices category. Additionally, SHB’s automotive/transport and toxic tort defense practices earned tier-two rankings, placing each group among the top 16 practices in the nation.

SHB was also highlighted in the guide’s intellectual property: patent prosecution section, which singled out SHB’s expertise in the telecom, computer software, and pharmaceutical and medical device industries.
