The brilliance of Shane Co.'s family-owned jewelry business has resulted not just from its diamonds but also from its growth. Tom Shane, the third generation of Shanes in the jewelry business, developed his company into the largest privately-held retail jewelry company in the United States, and he now runs the company with his son Rordan. A direct importer of diamonds, sapphires, rubies, and pearls, Shane Co. currently operates 20 stores in 13 states. Despite this continued success, Shane Co. never fails to recognize those who have helped along the way. "Fairfield and Woods has been a valued partner during the growth of the company," says Tom Shane. "And they continue to be our 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.
