The American Lawyer recently recognized Shook, Hardy & Bacon as a finalist in its Product Liability Litigation Department of the Year competition. Shook won the competition in 2008 and 2012 and was a finalist in 2010. (The American Lawyer did not include a product liability category in its 2014 competition.)
The American Lawyer evaluated firms on their product liability results achieved in a two-year period from July 1, 2013, to June 30, 2015. AmLaw notes that our team has defended 110 active class actions and 135 product liability claims in 25 countries in the last two years. The article cites notable defense verdicts for Boston Scientific in device litigation, for Altria in toxic tort cases, and quotes clients touting the firm’s “expertise in a number of different areas” and work in the forefront of offering alternative fee arrangements.
We are appreciative of the clients who entrust us with some of their most challenging product matters, allowing us to show our stuff.
