Parker joined the firm in 2007 and prior to that practiced exclusively in Alaska, representing a broad range of Alaska businesses. At Littler, he has had extensive experience working, in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, on matters ranging from traditional labor relations to wrongful termination suits.
