Courtney C. Shytle has joined McGuireWoods as a partner in the firm’s national products, environmental and mass torts litigation practice, bringing more than two decades of experience representing leading automakers and consumer goods manufacturers in high-profile cases.

As trial counsel to some of America’s largest carmakers, she managed multistate and class action litigation involving multiple matters and law firms.

In addition to her work with automotive clients, Shytle has represented product manufacturers in premises liability, toxic torts and personal injury cases. 

She comes to McGuireWoods from Bowman and Brooke, where she served as co-managing partner of the firm’s Columbia, South Carolina, office.

Shytle joins a McGuireWoods practice recognized by independent organizations as a leader in defending the world’s largest automakers in high-stakes litigation. Law360 has named McGuireWoods an “Automotive Practice Group of the Year” for its litigation prowess in the sector.
