She handles a wide range of matters, including executive employment contracts, enforceability of non-competition agreements, Wage Act violations, wrongful termination and commission disputes, breaches of fiduciary duty, discrimination and sexual harassment claims. She has been listed by Boston Magazine as a Massachusetts Rising Star seven times.

Recently, Shana appeared before the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts, successfully arguing an appeal on behalf of an employee in a case concerning an employer’s obligation to pay post-termination severance benefits due under an employment contract. See EventMonitor v. Leness, SJC Docket No. 11-920.

Shana’s experience includes litigation matters in federal and state court, as well as coaching clients behind the scenes, negotiating on their behalf, and counseling and representing them through all stages and in all aspects of the dispute resolution process.

Immediately after law school, Shana clerked for Chief Justice Margaret H. Marshall at the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts.
