Case Ownership


Shipley Snell staffs cases leanly with lawyers who learn the facts and the law that frame the matter. Every Shipley Snell lawyer who works on a matter knows the matter. Really knows it. We do not rotate lawyers in and out of cases.

We find that our approach to staffing means that cases are handled more efficiently, with less time spent by lawyers getting up to speed for discrete projects.

Shipley Snell clients can call any lawyer who works on a matter any time and get well-informed answers and advice. We do not believe in a “hierarchy” of contact points, and we want our clients to feel comfortable with every lawyer who works on their matter. Our paralegals are also well versed on the matters they handle and are a critical part of the client team.
