More About Shanna

Shanna is a managing partner and a litigator in Bishop & McKenzie’s Calgary office. Her practice emphasizes administrative law and general civil litigation. She regularly acts for clients involved in the self-regulation of professions; those involved in professional disciplinary hearings, including professions such as accountants, lawyers, engineers, realtors, teachers, dentists, medical professionals, and others.

She has appeared at all levels of court in Alberta and before many administrative tribunals. Shanna has completed over 125 trials and hearings and possesses keen experience with evidence and cross examinations.

Shanna is confident, direct, and provides succinct summaries along with take-charge efficiency—all qualities she has perfected as the mother of four grown sons. When not at work, she is in the mountains or in the ocean scuba diving. If you ever get the chance, ask her about her underwater photography or recent diving adventures.
