Shannon L. Saks


Shannon concentrates her litigation practice on general liability, premises, construction, labor law, and complex litigation. Shannon brings two decades of experience defending commercial property owners, general contractors, and not-for-profit organizations in high-exposure claims, often involving serious and catastrophic injuries and damages, from pre-suit to resolution. She also assists her clients in formulating and implementing new business policies and procedures for future efficiency and risk mitigation.

Prior to joining the firm, Shannon was of counsel with a full-service litigation firm in New York. Shannon received her Bachelor of Arts in interdisciplinary studies (communications, legal institutions, economics, and government) from American University in Washington, D.C., and her J.D. from Brooklyn Law School.

Shannon also serves on the board of 3GNY, an educational nonprofit organization founded by the grandchildren of Holocaust survivors. 3GNY uses family stories to teach about the dangers of intolerance and how to stand up to antisemitism, racism, and any identity-based hatred.
