Class of 2006
Principal at Law Offices of Shane Loomis, Westlake Village, CA
Why do you enjoy this practice area?
I love working with clients to analyze issues, to assess risk, and to formulate a strategy for balancing risk. In some cases, this can be achieved by implementing a policy, such as a grievance procedure that allows employees to have their concerns heard and evaluated. In other cases it involves explicitly assigning risk to a party by, for example, adding or removing a provision from a severance agreement. It is rewarding when a client, who had no idea what to do in response to a problem, develops a plan that provides guidance for how to address possible outcomes to a situation. While a client cannot always control what other parties will do, they can plan what their response to the other parties’ actions will be.
