The business and entertainment law firm Shackelford, Bowen, McKinley & Norton, LLP, announced the promotion of Dallas attorney Michelle Snedden to equity partner and Dallas attorney Stephen Shellenberger and Nashville attorney Lauren Kilgore to non-equity partners.

Shellenberger’s practice is focused on business and commercial litigation, as well as family law, wills, trusts and probate matters, personal injury and consumer protection matters. He previously worked with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and assisted the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Texas with the successful prosecution of drug and money laundering organizations in North and East Texas.

Kilgore is a Nashville-based litigator and entertainment attorney who represents a broad and diverse clientele of individuals and companies in commercial litigation. She also represents musicians, record labels and songwriters in recording, producing, distribution, publishing and incorporation matters.
