Biography

Greg has long been a trusted adviser and litigation counsel to several of the most successful multinational consumer product manufacturers in the world, including tobacco, alcohol and pharmaceutical/medical device producers, and, more recently soft drink, food and firearm producers. These companies, as well as others in the aeronautical and retail industries, have turned to Greg for guidance and counselling in strategic planning, regulatory compliance, risk management and commercial communications when it is needed the most. He has also managed and coordinated the defense of products claims and/or conducted product recalls for these clients in more than 60 countries on five continents. Greg was appointed managing partner of the London office, which effectively acts as the firm’s hub for all global product liability litigation and client counselling work, in January 2016.

Greg has extensive experience in the management and litigation of individual product liability claims and mass tort litigation in state and federal courts throughout the United States and internationally in Asia, Australia, Latin America and Western Europe. He counsels manufacturers on developments in product liability law and regulatory issues arising in those regions as well. He has represented U.S. and international clients in Consumer Product Safety Commission recalls. Before returning to Shook London, Greg completed postings in the firm’s London (1999-2000) and Kansas City (2001-2015) offices, and in Melbourne, Australia (1992-1994).

International Litigation and Regulatory Matters - Greg has managed litigation working directly with in-country counsel in the defense of product liability and other complex litigation in Australia, Germany, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Korea, Japan, Pakistan, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong and various other countries. He has also counseled the firm’s clients and provided assistance with regard to regulatory issues, developments in product liability and product safety laws as well as other issues of significance, in Asia, Western Europe and North America.

United States Product Liability Litigation - Greg has represented the firm’s tobacco, pharmaceutical and other consumer product clients in all phases of litigation since 1986. In tobacco litigation, he has represented Philip Morris and Lorillard Tobacco Company in individual lawsuits throughout the United States and was trial counsel in the first union trust fund class action reimbursement case, which resulted in a defense verdict in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Ohio. He continues to manage and litigate individual cases and mass litigation for the firm’s tobacco, pharmaceutical and other consumer product clients.

International and U.S. Product Recalls - Greg has represented U.S. and international consumer product manufacturers in recalls before the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and in related liability matters. He has conducted and managed recalls of consumer products in more than 65 countries.
