Shortly after joining Proskauer, where he had been a summer associate, he represented Major League Baseball in its investigation into Frank McCourt’s ownership of the Los Angeles Dodgers, as well as in the subsequent Dodgers bankruptcy.

Shawn is actively involved in promoting justice in his community. From 2011 to 2012, he served as counsel to the Los Angeles County Citizens’ Commission on Jail Violence, investigating inappropriate use of force by deputies within the county jail system and assisting in the drafting of a report on the prevalence and causes of deputy-on-inmate violence and potential reforms.

For his work on jail reform, Shawn received the ACLU of Southern California’s Community Service Pro Bono Award and a commendation from the County of Los Angeles. He also maintains a robust pro bono litigation practice and is co-chair of Proskauer’s Los Angeles Pro Bono Committee.

In 2014, he represented the Alliance for a Better Utah in drafting an amicus brief in the landmark Kitchen v.
