Shea & Gould was one of New York's best-known law firms. It was established as a result of a merger in 1964 between Manning, Hollinger & Shea and Gallup, Climenko & Gould. The firm acquired several smaller niche practices in antitrust and other areas during the 1970s. The firm dissolved in 1994. It once employed about 200 lawyers with offices in Washington, Albany, Los Angeles and London.
The Los Angeles office was opened with the 1989 acquisition of 70-lawyer firm, Pacht Ross Warne Bernhardt & Sears, but it closed only a few months later due to weak earnings. A number of Shea & Gould's Los Angeles lawyers left to open the office of the now-defunct New York City law firm Myerson & Kuhn.
Among the clients Shea & Gould represented were the New York Mets, the New York Yankees, Deloitte & Touche and the Marine Midland Bank. Some of its personal clients were Aristotle Onassis, New York's Mayor Abraham Beame and Reverend Sun Myung Moon. The firm was well known for its New York government relations practice, especially with the city's Democratic administrations in New York City and Albany. The firm's attorneys included the former Governor of New York, Hugh Carey, who joined as of counsel, and Wilbur D. Mills, a former U.S. Representative from Arkansas.
