The article offers a corporate profile of Shook Hardy & Bacon LLP, a Kansas City, Missouri-based law firm with a local practice and less than two dozen lawyers. It notes that the firm's client list included Philip Morris Cos. Inc., Ford Motor Co., Microsoft Corp., Pfizer Inc. and Sprint Nextel Corp. and it occupies all 24 floors of a sleek new Kansas City tower and maintains branches in eight other cities. It mentions that the company had grossed revenues of $316 million in 2007 and ranked 67th nationally in profits per partner at $930,000 up to 20 percent from 2006. Moreover, Shook Hardy lawyers maintain that the firm is probably in a class by itself when it comes to digging up potential dirt on a plaintiff.
