(June 1, 2022) – Littler, the world’s largest employment and labor law practice representing management, has named Shareholder Eric Mack (Providence) as the new co-chair of its Bollo affinity group, joining co-chair and Shareholder LaToi Mayo (Lexington). Mack succeeds Shareholder Michael Gregg (Irvine), who is stepping down to focus on his active practice and duties as president-elect of the Orange County Bar Association.
“On behalf of the firm, I congratulate Eric on his new role as co-chair and thank Michael for his time devoted to the Bollo affinity group,” said Erin Webber, Littler’s managing director and president. “I look forward to Eric’s contributions as he works alongside LaToi to further enhance and expand opportunities for the firm’s Black and African American professionals.”
In his employment practice at Littler, Mack is a member of the firm’s drug and alcohol, and diversity and inclusion practice groups. He routinely defends private employers against wage and hour, and discrimination claims in state and federal court.
Through Bollo’s inclusive community of support for the firm’s Black and African American attorneys, affinity group members work together to create strategies for succeeding at the firm, including skill enhancement, business development and mentoring opportunities. Its initiatives encompass supporting associate talent growth, increasing diversity recruiting efforts and developing career advancement programs.
