LOS ANGELES (August 20, 2018) – Littler, the world’s largest employment and labor law practice representing management, is pleased to announce that Jaime B. Laurent has joined the firm as a shareholder in Los Angeles. Previously an attorney at the boutique firm Marron Lawyers, Laurent is the ninth shareholder to join Littler since January.
“We’re excited to add Jaime to our deep bench of attorneys in Southern California,” said Shannon Boyce, office managing shareholder of Littler’s Los Angeles offices. “The regulatory landscape in this state poses unique challenges for employers, and Jaime’s prior background as a private practice attorney and as an in-house corporate attorney here in Los Angeles make him a terrific addition to our firm.”
Laurent regularly defends national and international companies in general and complex civil litigation involving a range of labor and employment claims, including discrimination, misclassification and wage and hour compliance. He has extensive experience representing companies in various industries in independent contractor misclassification litigation and draws on insights gained from successfully resolving numerous litigation matters to help clients manage litigation risks. Laurent also advises clients on proactive risk management at an operational level, including drafting labor agreements and advising on best practices.
“Littler has a great team here in Los Angeles, with a strong reputation that I’ve come to know well,” Laurent said. “But I was also drawn to the firm’s robust national and global platform and dedication to innovation in the delivery of legal services. I look forward to advancing my practice though Littler’s extensive platform and resources.”
Laurent received his J.D. from Pepperdine School of Law. He earned a B.A. in political science from the University of British Columbia and a B.A. in anthropology from the University of Alberta.
