WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 25, 2018) – Littler, the world’s largest employment and labor law practice representing management, is pleased to announce that Lance E. Gibbons has rejoined the firm as a shareholder in the Washington, D.C., office. Previously a partner at NT Lakis, LLP, Gibbons’ return to Littler marks the eighth shareholder to join the firm since January.
“Lance is a strong addition to the talented group of shareholders we’ve added this year, as he offers clients experienced counsel on labor and employment regulatory matters at all levels of government,” said Alison N. Davis, Littler’s office managing shareholder in Washington, D.C. “His extensive experience before the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs will deepen Littler’s position as the foremost advisor of management on anti-discrimination laws and affirmative action regulations.”
With nearly 20 years of experience counseling and representing clients on OFCCP matters, Gibbons advises companies on compliance with the array of employment-related requirements associated with government contracts, as well as in preparing for and resolving OFCCP audits. He also brings extensive experience representing clients on matters before other workplace regulatory and enforcement agencies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
“Littler has continued to increase its profile and influence around the globe and here in Washington, and I’m excited to return to the firm,” Gibbons said. “In addition to drawing on Littler’s robust platform and resources to serve clients, I look forward to supporting the firm’s efforts to engage with the government on behalf of employers on labor and employment related developments.”
As part of his role, Gibbons will work closely with members of Littler’s Workplace Policy Institute® (WPI™), which serves as a resource for employers to ensure that they have a voice in legislative and regulatory developments that impact their workplaces and business strategies.
During his time at NT Lakis, Gibbons also served as assistant general counsel to the Center for Workplace Compliance, where he assisted the association’s members in understanding and managing their workplace compliance requirements and risks. Earlier in his career, he served as senior counsel to National Labor Relations Board Member Peter C. Schaumber.
Gibbons received his J.D., with distinction, from Ohio Northern University College of Law and his B.S. from Miami University.
