Shane H. McKenzie
Shane McKenzie is an associate at the firm with trial court and appellate litigation experience in complex tort and business matters in diverse practice areas, including employment, personal injury, products liability, partnership disputes, bankruptcy, insurance, immigration, and intellectual property.
Her notable victories include a published decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, unanimously reversing a denial of an immigration petition on behalf of a detained Kenyan citizen. Shane also helped to successfully defend a trial court’s decision to exclude expert testimony seeking over $1 billion in lost profit damages. That matter resulted in a decision by the California Supreme Court establishing that trial courts have a “gatekeeping” responsibility to exclude speculative expert testimony. Before joining the firm, she practiced as a litigation associate at Quinn Emanuel LLP.
