Poole & Shaffery, LLP, Celebrates 20th Anniversary
May 2018 marked a significant milestone in the history of the Santa Clarita-based business law firm, Poole & Shaffery, LLP: The firm turned 20 years old.
“We’re extremely proud of our entire team and the successes we have achieved as a firm in our first two decades,” said John Shaffery, an experienced litigator who co-founded the firm with partner David Poole 20 years ago. “Our team’s commitment to provide every business or corporate client with top-notch representation has earned the firm widespread respect and a reputation for excellence.”
In its first 20 years, Poole & Shaffery, LLP, has grown to include 22 attorneys, nine of whom have joined the founders as partners in the firm. Poole & Shaffery serves business clients and individuals throughout California from a half-dozen locations. In addition to its headquarters in Santa Clarita, Poole & Shaffery’s office locations include Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Walnut Creek and Orange County.
Poole, who specializes in civil litigation in areas including complex business disputes, said the firm’s success is inextricably linked to the strong working relationships it has built with clients throughout the state.
“We’re honored to serve an incredible array of businesses with diverse needs,” Poole said. “We take pride in our firm’s capability to meet those needs and provide the hands-on attention a client would expect from a smaller firm, combined with the strength of experience and resources you’d find in a larger firm.”
The firm provides businesses with professional, effective legal representation in a variety of areas, including business and commercial transactions, business and employment litigation, mediations and arbitrations, employment counseling, business succession, estate planning, trust administration, and real estate transactions and litigation.
Poole & Shaffery also is a proud member of the Santa Clarita Valley business community. Each February, Poole & Shaffery hosts an annual employment law update for local businesses that has become one of the year’s most anticipated informational events for businesses. The employment law update provides business leaders with important information about California’s ever-changing labor laws.
In recent years Poole & Shaffery has taken a proactive approach to helping businesses protect themselves in areas like human resources regulations and sexual harassment training. The firm offers an assessment of all of a business’ employment policies and procedures, including its employee handbook, for a reasonable flat fee. The firm also offers an in-person training program on prevention of sexual harassment, in which Poole & Shaffery legal counsel leads a company’s employees through real-life scenarios, an approach that has proven to improve employee engagement in the state-mandated training.
“I’m proud to be part of such a forward-thinking firm that has built an outstanding track record of service to its business clientele,” said Brian Koegle, a partner in the firm who focuses on labor and employment law. “The firm’s successes over its first 20 years have been remarkable, and it will be exciting to see what the next 20 years will bring at Poole & Shaffery.”
