Theberge, Shiloh D.


Here’s why you’ll enjoy working with her.

Shiloh practices in numerous areas of labor and employment law, including employment discrimination and harassment, family and medical leave, disability accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and relevant state law, whistleblower and retaliation claims, wrongful discharge, and wage and hour matters. Shiloh also defends institutions of higher education and other schools in employment and student Title IX cases. Shiloh also serves as a neutral investigator in sensitive employment matters, including investigations regarding discrimination, harassment, including sexual harassment, and retaliation, handling such matters with thoughtfulness for all parties involved.

Having spent almost 15 years representing employers in New England and the Mid-Atlantic on various employment-related issues, Shiloh provides her clients with thoughtful and practical advice on how to handle complex personnel issues and litigation—all while maintaining a positive, empathetic attitude. Her ability to handle these matters in a practical, business-savvy manner allows her to find the best and most efficient solutions for her clients.

Shiloh enjoys the constantly changing nature of labor and employment law and works hard to develop long-term relationships with clients who can count on her to help keep them out of court. When litigation does occur, Shiloh aggressively represents each client’s unique interests, working tirelessly to achieve the best possible outcome.

But that’s not all. Shiloh is also very experienced in:

  • Drafting and updating employment-related policies for employers
  • Assisting clients to draft and update employee handbooks and state supplements in line with ever-changing employment laws
  • Conducting HR Audits with new, growing, and established businesses
  • Training employees on DEIB, hiring, discipling, disability, and terminations accommodations
  • Executive employment agreements
  • Drug testing policies and guidance
  • Settlement negotiation and mediation
  • General commercial litigation matters

In her former life, Shiloh was:

  • An associate and of counsel at two local Portland law firms, including Littler, the largest law firm in the world devoted solely to representing management in labor and employment law matters
  • A litigation associate at Saul Ewing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • A legal assistant at Skadden

When Shiloh isn’t working , she is…

Driving her two teenagers to every sport imaginable and to the orthodontist. Shiloh enjoys hiking and viewing Maine’s stunning fall foliage, practicing power yoga, reading Agatha Christie novels, trying all varieties of food (and wine and of course), and watching New England Patriots football with her Dad and three younger brothers.
