“BNSF Railway GC Jumps to Thompson & Knight”
Thompson & Knight said Thursday that it has snagged BNSF Railway Corp. General Counsel Charles Shewmake as a new partner in the firm’s trial practice.
Shewmake has spent the last eight years as Fort Worth-based BNSF’s general counsel, but has been with the company since 1988, when he started his career there as an intern.
Shewmake said he was drawn to Thompson & Knight because he knows many of the lawyers and the firm’s strong repuatation through working with them over the years. BNSF has been a longtime client of Thompson & Knight’s.
