Jane Davis – Shumaker Williams, P.C.

Practice/Organization Description

I joined Shumaker Williams, P.C. as a shareholder in July 2006 and am a member of the Corporate and Financial Services Department. My main practice focus is on corporate and commercial law, mergers and acquisitions, securities regulation and corporate governance.

From 1995 to December 2005, I was the Vice President, Secretary, and General Counsel of York International Corporation, a Fortune 500 and New York Stock Exchange-listed manufacturer of heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration equipment. I was responsible for all of the company’s legal matters, including numerous acquisitions, divestitures and other business transactions and compliance with corporate governance requirements, and securities laws and regulations.

I also served as Secretary to the company’s Board of Directors and several Board Committees. From 1987 to 1995, I served as Vice President, General Counsel, and Secretary of Joy Technologies Inc. (now Joy Global Corp.), a publicly-held manufacturer of underground coal mining equipment and other industrial products.

I am a 1978 graduate of the Duquesne University School of Law where I was a member of the Duquesne Law Review and an article editor. I received a B.A. in French from Elmira College and an M.A. in French Language and Literature from the University of Pittsburgh. I am licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania and am a member of a number of professional and civic organizations.
