The Am Law Daily previously reported on the case involving Shaw in October after he pled guilty to federal charges of stealing money from the firm between 2002 and 2010. Prosecutors claimed that Shaw had assumed the identity of a firm investigator to charge for $90,000 in services and then pocketed the money.
Shaw also billed Greenberg Traurig for roughly $425,000 in title examination services under the name of a fictitious vendor. Earlier this year he lost a battle with the Supreme Court of Georgia over how long he would be suspended from practicing law. Shaw has since been disbarred.
