Shajia Bashir joined our New Lawyers Group (NLG) in 2021. The NLG provides our newest lawyers with the opportunity to gain exposure to different practice areas and lawyering styles before making a commitment to a specific practice. Individuals in the NLG may focus on a particular area of practice, or compare practices, during their first year with Jones Day.
Prior to joining Jones Day, Shajia trained at international and national law firms, where she worked on intellectual property, media and technology, and data protection matters. During this time she advised German and international corporate clients across diverse technology-driven industries pertaining to information technology, telemedia, telecommunication, e- and m-commerce, web and mobile applications, and software. She also advised clients on data protection and cyber security-related issues.
During her legal clerkship at the Superior Court of California in 2019, she participated in legal research involving American criminal law and procedure.
