About Littler Mexico

Littler is the largest law practice in the world devoted exclusively to representing management in every aspect of labor and employment law, with more than 1,500 attorneys and 80 offices worldwide.

Littler established a reputation over 75 years as one of the leading firms in the United States representing employers and has expanded outside the country to better serve a growing list of international clients. Littler expanded into Latin America in 2010 and into Mexico in 2012. Today Littler is a prominent law firm in Mexico exclusively dedicated to the practice of labor and employment law, with offices in the cities of Mexico City and Monterrey.

We have extensive experience working with institutions and labor authorities in Mexico on the local, state and federal levels, as well as with international organizations. We focus on providing legal services to clients in the areas of labor consulting, individual labor litigation, collective matters, social security and immigration.

We regularly assist our multinational clients with cross-border operations, preventative measures to avoid litigation, and other labor issues. When litigation arises, we have experienced trial lawyers who have represented clients in a wide range of individual and collective actions. We also negotiate and execute labor agreements, negotiate terminations and conduct audits, and assist employers with their internal operations, from regulations and compliance to implementation of pension plans, employee policies and employment contracts, and labor restructuring that results from mergers and acquisitions.
