I am pleased to report that the attorneys and staff from Chicago complex  litigation boutique Grippo & Elden LLC will join your humble blogger’s firm, effective March 1, 2015.

Chicago is the fourth new city for Shook over the past three years: previous additions include my location in Philadelphia (2012), Seattle (2013), and Denver (2014). Shook now has 13 office locations, two in Europe and 11 in the U.S.

Founded in Chicago in 1988, Grippo & Elden boasts significant business and commercial litigation experience, including with class actions, which our readership is particularly interested in. The firm has been widely recognized for excellence by Chambers USA and Best Law Firms/Best Lawyers®. Firm attorneys have earned membership in several prestigious, invitation-only organizations, including the American College of Trial Lawyers and Litigation Counsel of America.

The group will be located in Grippo & Elden’s current space, at 111 S. Wacker Drive. Welcome aboard!
