Hanover, MD (March 7th, 2024) Major, Lindsey & Africa (MLA), the world's leading legal search firm, has announced the placement of Anand Shah as general counsel at YAI.  YAI, one of New York’s largest healthcare non-profits, is a network of agencies which offers children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities a comprehensive range of services. The search was led by Sheri Michaels, partner, and Pamela Salling, managing director, with MLA’s In House Counsel Recruiting team in New York and Basking Ridge.
