SmartSearch allows Littler’s attorneys and staff to locate work product, internal subject matter expertise, and client and matter information in a single, easy-to-use system. Combining Google-like simplicity with advanced filtering capabilities, SmartSearch was designed to help our attorneys find relevant precedents, identify the firm’s know-how and review client and matter profiles quickly and easily – all with the goal of providing efficient and quality service to our clients.

Resource Centers

The online Litigation and Class Action Resource Centers were designed by KM to provide timely and easily accessible resources for attorneys working on single-plaintiff and class-action employment, benefits and wage and hour litigation. By dividing the litigation process into eight phases, from initial case investigation to post-trial, the sites provide an easily navigable road map for attorneys to follow to better serve the needs of our clients in litigation and class-action matters. The centers are designed to be an all-inclusive portal for litigators, paralegals and litigation secretaries to permit them to find sample documents and resources quickly and efficiently. This resource equips our attorneys with the tools necessary to provide exceptional and effective client representation.
