Shelley specializes in securities law, and her practice focuses on advising private companies and investors with respect to securities transactions. Shelley began her career with Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen and Hamilton in New York and worked for two years in Cleary’s London office where she gained experience in international mergers and acquisitions and sophisticated financing transactions. Shelley returned to Phoenix in 2004 and worked for many years with large lawfirms in Phoenix representing a range of clients from entrepreneurs and start-ups to large private and public companies. In 2011, having caught the entrepreneurial spirit from her start-up clients, Shelley left her position as a partner in Osborn Maledon’s corporate group and launched her solo practice. In June 2013, Nancy Pisaruk joined the firm as a partner. Shelley assists her clients from start-up through exit, advising on a variety of business matters including commercial contracts, loan agreements, licensing agreements, supply and distribution agreements and the sale and acquisition of assets, securities and companies.
