As a new shareholder at Parr Brown, LaShel Shaw has distinguished herself as a capable and proficient advocate. Ms. Shaw has represented a variety of clients in proceedings before the Utah district and appellate courts, the federal district court, and the United States Patent and Trademark Office. She excels at summarizing complex factual and legal issues so that they can be quickly and convincingly communicated to judges, regulators, mediators, and juries.

While Ms. Shaw’s practice focuses primarily on intellectual property and advertising, Ms. Shaw has worked on cases involving a wide array of legal problems, including contract disputes, constitutional violations, patent validity and ownership, copyright infringement, trademarks and trade secrets, unfair competition, false advertising and mislabeling, internet law, and cyber torts. Ms. Shaw is also well-experienced in helping companies negotiate the risks of doing business online, from drafting website terms and conditions and ensuring compliance with FDA and FTC regulations to shutting down cybersquatters and navigating DMCA takedown requests.

Prior to joining Parr Brown, Ms. Shaw worked as a law clerk for the Honorable Clark Waddoups, defended a master’s thesis on Viking religion, and reported on local politics for the Mt. Pleasant Pyramid.
