Aug. 1 — Eleven employment litigators left Locke Lord LLP to join Littler Mendelson P.C., Littler announced Aug. 1.
“Having greater resources from a firm that focuses on what my team and I do will be a big advantage for us and allow us to deliver more efficient and effective services to our clients,” Todd M. Reed told Bloomberg BNA Aug. 1.
Reed, who will be a shareholder at Littler in Providence, R.I., cited “the bench depth” from Littler's “vast network of labor and employment lawyers all over the country” as well as the firm's “technology platforms” such as CaseSmart as factors in his team's decision to join.
“We have known this move was coming and wish them all the best. They are a fine group of attorneys and we believe they will be a very good fit for Littler,” Julie Gilbert, Locke Lord's chief marketing officer, told Bloomberg BNA Aug. 1.
“The unique type of labor and employment matters this group handled had not been the type of work Locke Lord did prior to the Locke Lord-Edwards Wildman merger” that brought them to Locke Lord in January 2015, Gilbert said.
Gary J. Lieberman and Siobhan M. Sweeney will join Reed as shareholders at Littler, where they will work in the Boston office.
Eight other lawyers also left Locke Lord to join Littler as counsel. They are John B. Moretta, Heather A. Pierce and Raymond M. Ripple in Providence; Alice A. Kokodis, Caroline Turcotte and Laura M. Raisty in Boston; and Richard M. DeAgazio and Marcy A. Gilroy in Newark, N.J.
Littler has more than 1,000 lawyers in more than 70 offices worldwide, the firm said. The firm describes itself as the largest global employment and labor law practice.
