Los Angeles, CA/ September 22, 2009 -- Littler Mendelson, P.C. (Littler), the nation's largest employment and labor law firm representing management, is proud to announce that Robert Millman, chairman of the Board of Directors at Littler and founding shareholder of Littler's Los Angeles office, has been honored by the Los Angeles and San Francisco Daily Journals as one of the "Top 100 Lawyers in California." This prestigious award recognizes attorneys whose achievements have had a considerable effect on the law. The publication is California's largest legal news provider.
To qualify for this recognition, lawyers must be based in California but can work on matters anywhere in the world. Most importantly, lawyers must have had a significant impact in their practice area, the legal industry or society at large.
Key considerations for Millman's honor included: his representation of the collective bargaining arm of the entertainment industry - the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) - in the strike-related labor issues in 2007 and 2008; the final resolution of this volatile dispute; and his national achievements on behalf of healthcare clients throughout the United States. Few lawyers in the nation have Millman's in-depth knowledge of the SEIU, NUHW, CNA/NNOC and union organizing efforts in the healthcare labor world.
Both, highly accomplished and highly regarded for his work in the area of traditional labor law, Millman has also been previously recognized by The National Law Journal as one of the country's leading management employment attorneys and was recently named one of the top five labor attorneys in California by the Los Angeles and San Francisco Daily Journals.
"We are extremely pleased that Robert Millman has again been recognized by the Daily Journal for his ongoing contributions to the legal community," said Robert Blumberg, office managing shareholder of the Los Angeles office. "These back–to- back awards confirm his tremendous value to our clients, our firm and to the labor and employment community as a whole."
