I have a .dwg file and I would like to convert it into .shp

I've seen some answers on the web but it requests to have a big software like ArcGis, and I'm not even sure it works.
Is there any easier converter to do so ?
Thanks

Is it a one off? Is the data confidential? How big is it? Sometimes it is just better to have it done for you by someone with a converter like Arc. It might turn 10 hours to 10 minutes! I may be able to assist.

Else If you can convert it to dxf you could also use QGIS which is a freebie which works well with shapefiles! only a 100mb download.
