The Firm

Shields Harney was formed in 1998 by John Shields and Greg Harney. Both having left large firms, they joined forces to better serve their clients with a personal, results-focused approach. The firm has recruited energetic, motivated and bright associates who provide high-quality service to clients.

Our areas of expertise include commercial litigation and business law, franchise litigation, employment law, intellectual property, creditors' remedies, and privacy law. We are also experienced in alternative dispute resolution processes such as arbitration and mediation. Our goal is to solve our clients' problems.

We are skilled in the courtroom, and our lawyers frequently teach courses to other lawyers and publish articles on litigation and business law.

Our remuneration can include fixed fees or contingency fees rather than the traditional adherence to the hourly rate. This gives our clients budget certainty and means that our results will be measured by our work and success in achieving their goals rather than on the number of hours we spend on their matter.
