Client Review
Shannan is a superior outside counsel. She works extremely hard, is thorough and detail oriented and can be counted on to provide comprehensive legal analysis and first rate contract drafting.
Posted by Puneet | May 29, 2008
Superior Intellect, Highest Level of Integrity, and Tremendous Business Acumen
I cannot speak highly enough about Shannan. She has been an invaluable advisor and resource to our New Business Development (NBD) team at T-Mobile. She deftly straddles both the legal and business arenas with the utmost of ease and has built up tremendous domain expertise across consumer Internet deals, content deals, and more. Her negotiating skills are second to none and in all candor she truly has become a member of our team as opposed to our outside counsel. On multiple occasions she has generated unique solutions to address problems arising out of the most complex of issues including privacy, exclusivity, and more. I recommend Shannan without any hesitation.
