Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Shannon Wiley was named a member of the 2020 class of Fellows for the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD). This landmark program was created by LCLD to identify, train, and advance the next generation of leaders in the legal profession. The one-year LCLD Fellows Program offers participants an in-depth experience devoted to relationship-building, in-person training, peer-group projects, and extensive contact with LCLD’s top leadership.

Shannon focuses her practice on healthcare regulatory and transactional matters with a specific emphasis in the specialty pharmaceutical industry. She advises clients on various aspects of drug distribution and reimbursement, including the development and contracting of distribution drug networks, pharmacy services arrangements, hub arrangements, data services arrangements, and GPO arrangements, among others. She also counsels companies on regulations such as the Anti-Kickback Statute, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Civil Monetary Penalty Law, and FDA regulations such as the Drug Supply Chain Security Act.

Founded in 2009, LCLD is a growing organization of more than 320 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners who are personally committed to creating a more diverse and inclusive legal profession. The LCLD Fellows Program, which has trained more than a 1,600 mid-career attorneys since 2011, is one of LCLD’s most important initiatives. For more information, visit
