From Shane's Bio:
With a wealth of experience as a lawyer and an entrepreneur, my practice is focused on structuring and executing business strategies supported by efficient legal frameworks.
My business experience includes leading operations for the establishment of the New York headquarters of Mixpanel, one of Silicon Valley's fastest growing tech companies. Prior to working with Mixpanel, I cofounded a financial services company, expanding access to capital to small and medium sized enterprises in developing markets. I have also consulted for various early and growth stage startups, with a focus on building and implementing efficient operational structures, including the design and implementation of B2B and B2C products and services. Client industries included financial services, technology, entertainment, food and beverage, spirits, action sports, and retail.
My legal experience includes practicing as a senior associate in the banking and credit group of Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP, representing financial institutions and companies in connection with domestic and international commercial lending transactions, including general corporate financings, project financings, acquisition related credit facilities, and restructurings. I also practiced as an associate in the finance group of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP, representing agents, commercial lenders, borrowers and trustees in a variety of domestic and cross-boarder finance transactions, including energy and infrastructure project financings, bank financings, aircraft and equipment financings, leveraged and operating leasing, and securitizations.
Whether I am assisting an early stage client with entity selection and contract development or a growth stage client with a cross-boarder multi-billion dollar acquisition, my goal is to provide simple counsel on complex matters, providing you with the clarity to establish and achieve your business goals.
