U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers have named Shook, Hardy & Bacon to their annual list of Best Law Firms.

Shook received two national Tier 1 rankings, for Commercial Litigation and Mass Tort Litigation/Class Action – Defendants (it is surely a coincidence that those are the primary areas of your humble blogger), and 12 total national rankings.

In addition, seven of Shook’s offices received 21 Tier 1 metropolitan rankings and 42 total metropolitan rankings in the three-tiered list. Shook’s Metropolitan Tier 1 rankings include the office of your author, Philly, for FDA Law, and Mass Tort Litigation / Class Actions – Defendants.

The complete rankings appear in U.S. News & World Report’s  Best Law Firms report.
