Five attorneys with Raleigh-based Shanahan Law Group, PLLC have been named to the 2020 North Carolina Super Lawyers list. Partners Kieran Shanahan, Brandon Neuman, and John Branch were recognized as Super Lawyers Honorees, with Branch also being named to the Top 100 North Carolina Lawyers list. Jeffrey Kelly and Christopher Battles were recognized as Rising Stars Honorees. Each year, fewer than five percent of the lawyers in North Carolina are selected by the research team at Super Lawyers to receive the honor of Super Lawyers Honoree, and less than 2.5 percent are named Rising Stars Honorees.

“We are grateful that our entire senior litigation team is included in the 2020 Super Lawyers list, and we are humbled by the recognition from our peers in the legal profession,” said Kieran Shanahan, former federal prosecutor and founder of Shanahan Law Group “This recognition reinforces the fact that our firm is blessed to have a roster stocked with top-tier legal talent.”
