Littler Mendelson Beefing Up Its Core Competencies
Littler Mendelson, P.C. (Littler), is recognized as one of the world’s largest employment and labor law firms. Labor and employment has always been the core practice area of Littler and recent developments show it is strengthening its core competencies rather than spreading out into new practice areas in search of revenue.
This week, the law firm elected new leaders as co-presidents and co-managing directors of the firm for an eight-year term. Thomas Bender (Philadelphia) and Jeremy Roth (San Diego) were elected to succeed Marko Mrkonich who has served as managing director and president since 2005. The move strengthens the firm by introducing multiple heads of command than a single one, and also frees Marko Mrkonich to focus full time on his practice of law.
Garrry Mathiason, chairman of the board at Littler said, “During the next eight years, Littler will look to significantly expand its global presence, further strengthen its footing in the domestic market, and continue to lead the charge in innovating new technology-based approaches to client service and case management.”
Within the same week, Littler also hired veteran labor and employment lawyer Guy M. Allen as a new partner in the firm’s Melville office. Allen is a former partner at Abbott, Reiss & Allen P.C. He has a broad experience in representing employment matters and has a stellar reputation as an employment attorney.
John Bauer, office managing shareholder of the law firm’s Melville office said, “Guy is a invaluable addition to Littler, and brings with him both an impressive background and strong litigation and employment law experience … We are thrilled to welcome him to the firm.”
Littler Mendelson has over 900 attorneys and 56 offices across the world and throughout the U.S. Established in 1942, the law firm is known as one of the most specialized and powerful law firms in the world in labor & employment.
