Shane Co.

The brilliance of Tom Shane’s jewelry business, founded in Colorado in 1971, has resulted not just from its diamonds, but also from its growth. Tom, the third generation of Shanes in the jewelry business, developed his company into one of the largest privately held retail jewelry chains in the United States. The company, a direct importer of diamonds and other stones, operates 20 stores in 13 states and on its website. All that success doesn’t mean there haven’t been bumps along the way.  “Fairfield and Woods has been a valued partner during the growth of the company,” says Tom Shane. “And continues to be the company’s outside counsel on real estate, intellectual property, contract and general business matters.” Additionally, FW has handled Tom’s estate planning for more than 30 years. A brilliant partnership.
