Sanders Roberts LLP
Shawn Thomas is currently a partner at Sanders Roberts LLP. He started his career in 2008 at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman in New York, where he was an associate for seven years. Thomas has built a successful litigation and trial practice in Los Angeles and New York, two of the nation’s most competitive and cutting-edge legal markets.
Over the last several years, Thomas has become go-to litigation counsel on a variety of high-stakes matters for several public entities. In 2019, he successfully defended one large Southern California municipality in an extremely high stakes, high profile employment litigation. After a month-long trial the jury returned a unanimous verdict in favor of the defense on all causes of action. Earlier this year, the Court of Appeal upheld that judgment on appeal. Since then, he has racked up additional wins for a variety of public and private clients.
