The Chicago office of Polsinelli Shughart welcomes new associate attorney Shannon Y. Shin to the firm’s loan enforcement and bankruptcy practices. Shin most recently practiced as a commercial litigator handling matters in the food, oil and gas and financial services industries.

“It’s an exciting time to join Polsinelli Shughart,” said Shin. “I look forward to making my contributions to the firm’s long legacy of superior client service. There are many opportunities here as the firm continues to grow and attract great clients and talented attorneys.”

Shin will join Polsinelli lawyers whose traditional strengths in lender-side representations are known nationally. Her prior work in representing clients in financial services and related fields will complement this deep bench of experience.

“We are very pleased that Shannon has come to our Chicago office,” said Anthony J. Nasharr, managing director of the Chicago office. “Her diverse background in litigation involving financial ventures is a great fit for us. We have a strong and growing presence in Chicago representing both lenders and borrowers.”

Shin received a B.A. with university honors in Political Science from the Johns Hopkins University where she was a member of Phi Beta Kappa and editor-in-chief of The Johns Hopkins News-Letter. Shin also earned a Bachelor of Music degree from the Peabody Conservatory of Music in 2002. She received a Master of Studies degree in Musicology from the University of Oxford in 2003 and her JD in 2009 from the University of Michigan Law School, where she was an editor for the University of Michigan Journal of Law Reform. Shin was a student attorney in the Child Advocacy Law Clinic, through which she represented several clients in all stages of litigation and won a multi-day trial.
