Am Law 200 firm Shook Hardy & Bacon has launched an Atlanta office with three product liability defense partners from Alston & Bird: Colin Kelly, who’s heading the office, Josh Becker and Anna Sumner Pieschel.

Atlanta is the first incursion into the Southeast, outside of Florida, for the 500-lawyer, litigation-focused firm, which has 90% of its lawyers practicing in that area. Founded 130 years ago in Kansas City, Missouri, Shook placed at No. 103 on The American Lawyer’s Am Law 200 revenue ranking for 2018 with $348.1 million in revenue and $918,000 in average profits per equity partner.
