Commercial Finance partner Shana Ramirez was profiled in Law360 on her joining Katten. When asked about her decision to change firms, Shana stated that she feels a personal connection to the people at Katten and sees the firm as an excellent platform from which she can grow her practice. "Katten has always been focused on finance and is a highly-regarded leader in the field, so [the move] made sense for me." The article notes her broad experience is a good match for the variety of work available in the financing space. Shana added, "My goal to develop different types of clients and do different types of deals that will make me well enough diversified, so that if and when another economic downturn happens, I'm prepared for that."
