Shannon Moore

Trainee Solicitor

Shannon joined McAllister Olivarius after graduating from Lancaster University with First Class Honours in Law. Whilst at University, Shannon volunteered at the local Law Clinic, giving legal advice to those who could not afford representation. She also served on the Executive Board of Lancaster University’s Law Society as the Careers Officer, running seminars, lectures and trips to help fellow students achieve their career goals. Her dissertation analysed the merits and failings of the Solicitors Qualification Examinations that are due to be introduced in 2021. She has since published an article and been quoted in the Law Gazette on the subject.

At McAllister Olivarius, Shannon works on employment and sexual abuse cases, and is now completing her training contract in order to qualify as a Solicitor in 2021.

In her leisure time she enjoys cooking hearty English classics and baking everything from cupcakes to three-tier masterpieces. She also enjoys camping and hiking in the peaks, and in her home town in the Derbyshire Dales.

I will always be grateful for your unwavering support of me. Equally, I will always be grateful for showing me how to find my voice and strength.

Title IX case against UCLA, client confidential

It was such a weight off our shoulders; suddenly somebody else with a lot more experience was managing the case.

Sandeep Mander, Mander v. Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead

We really thought that there was nothing that anybody could do for us. We were wrong.

Dr Celeste Kidd, Aslin et al v. University of Rochester et al

To get the result you got you must be as tough with your legal opposites as you are kind and understanding to your clients.

AOA client, confidential

Compared with other law firms I’ve worked with, no one matches the combination that McO has of experience, brilliance, ferocious fighting and deep empathy for their clients.

Dr Holly Atkinson, Atkinson et al v. Mount Sinai Health System, Inc. et al

Because my case could not bear public scrutiny, a very powerful institution used massive financial resources to try to crush me for asking for my disability rights. This was a huge mistake, as they didn’t know that I would obtain McO representation. I couldn’t ask for better representation.

Disability Rights client, confidential

I would like to say from bottom of my heart, thank you. Thank you to all the team. Now I can go and forget my former employer. God bless you all.
