International law firm Dorsey & Whitney LLP announced today that Shawn Larsen-Bright, a partner in the Firm’s Trial Group in Seattle, has been named one of PUGET SOUND BUSINESS JOURNAL’S 2015 40 Under 40.

Mr. Larsen-Bright is a business litigator with a practice focused on complex corporate and commercial litigation and appeals. He is the Head of Dorsey’s Seattle Trial Group and has extensive experience with disputes concerning securities, fiduciary duties, fraud, contracts, corporate trusts, corporate control, health care, real estate and banking, as well as with class actions and derivative matters. He also has substantial experience representing companies and individuals in internal investigations and regulatory enforcement matters, and frequently represents banks and broker-dealers in matters involving securities, banking, credit and other financial services.

In addition to his legal practice, Mr. Larsen-Bright is active in the profession and in the community. He currently serves on the Board of Trustees of the King County Bar Association and as the Board Chair of Kids Co., a leading provider of childcare for families in the Puget Sound region. He is also the pro bono coordinator for Dorsey’s Seattle office and contributes significant time toward pro bono trial and appellate matters involving constitutional rights. He has been recognized as a “Rising Star” by Washington Super Lawyers (2010-2015).

Each year, the PUGET SOUND BUSINESS JOURNAL has a panel of judges sift through hundreds of nominations — nearly 400 this year — and choose 40 leaders younger than 40 who already have accomplished much in their professional lives while giving back to the community.

“Shawn is a preeminent trial and appellate lawyer who has built a thriving practice while giving back generously to the profession and to the community,” noted Ken Cutler, Managing Partner of Dorsey & Whitney. “We are extremely proud of his achievements and of this recognition.”
