HOUSTON (March 8, 2018) – Littler, the world’s largest employment and labor law practice representing management, has added Charles H. Wilson as a shareholder in the Houston office. Wilson previously served as Vice Chair, Office Managing Partner at Cozen O'Connor’s Houston office and was a member of the labor and employment department.
“With deep roots in the region and more than 20 years of employment litigation experience, Charles is a fantastic addition to our talented team in Houston,” said Kelley Edwards, Littler’s Houston Office Managing Shareholder. “He brings an impressive track record defending clients in a range of employment-related matters and we are excited to welcome him to the firm.”
Wilson represents national and international companies in cases involving discrimination and harassment claims, wage and hour violations, whistleblowing and retaliation, workplace injury, breaches of contract and misappropriation of trade secrets, among other issues. He also counsels employers on traditional labor law matters, including collective bargaining and grievance labor arbitrations. With experience that includes serving as an in-house lawyer at a hospitality company, Wilson provides clients with practical guidance on workplace issues while managing a range of complex litigation, trials and appeals.
“Littler is known as a progressive and innovative firm with unparalleled subject matter knowledge in every area of labor and employment law,” Wilson said. “I’ve had opportunities in the past to work with many of the accomplished attorneys in Littler’s Houston office that I’m now honored to call colleagues. I look forward to leveraging the firm’s resources and extensive global platform to further expand my practice.”
Wilson’s addition is the latest in a string of attorneys who have joined Littler since the beginning of the year, including William Foster (Greenville, South Carolina), Devjani Mishra (New York), Anne LaWer (San Jose) and Bradley Schwan (Los Angeles and Orange County).
