Anne Shuttee brings to her practice more than twenty years of experience as an in-house commercial litigation attorney for a Fortune 500 company, almost ten years of litigation experience with major law firms, and a judicial clerkship. Her many years of experience addressing and resolving a wide variety of legal disputes involving her clients’ customers, vendors, and joint venturers enable her to look at legal problems from multiple angles and to develop creative approaches to their resolution.

Anne has long experience in the development and innovative use of alternative dispute techniques and immediately saw the potential that collaborative law holds for the resolution of commercial disputes, becoming an early proponent of the collaborative process in the business arena. She understands the value of interest-based negotiations to resolve disputes and takes that approach in her mediation practice when appropriate to the resolution of the dispute. Anne’s experience and skill in contract interpretation, legal analysis, and case evaluation also enable her to serve effectively as an arbitrator or special master.

A frequent speaker on dispute resolution and litigation topics, Anne spoke on collaborative law at the ABA Section of Dispute Resolution’s Spring Conference in 2009 and on the no-contact rule at the Dallas Bar Association in 2008 and 2009, and she is scheduled to speak on discovery depositions at the State Bar of Texas’ Advanced Evidence and Discovery Course in May 2010.

Anne has long been active in the Dallas Bar Association and the Collin County Bar Association, and is a former President of the Plano Bar Association. She is a volunteer mediator with two dispute resolution services in Dallas and Plano, and represents parties pro bono with Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas, for which she has received numerous awards.
