SAN FRANCISCO, CA (June 17, 2014) – Ten attorneys from Littler, the world’s largest employment and labor law practice representing management, have been recognized in the newly-released “Nation’s Most Powerful Employment Attorneys,” an annual list compiled by Human Resource Executive® magazine and Lawdragon, which recognizes employment lawyers nationwide for professional excellence. Attorneys are nominated by Human Resource Executive’s® and Lawdragon’s subscribers and then selected after a rigorous vetting process.
The following Littler attorneys are included in this year’s list: Robert Friedman, Barry Hartstein, Patrick Hicks, Fermin Llaguno, Michael Lotito, Steve McCown, Marko Mrkonich, Jeremy Roth, Robert Wolff and Susan Woodhouse. They join Littler shareholder Garry Mathiason who was named to the publication’s Hall of Fame category last year.
Created in 2007, the purpose of the “Nation’s Most Powerful Employment Attorneys” list is to provide corporate counsel and human resource professionals with an unparalleled guide to top lawyers who are poised to help them resolve difficult employment situations and keep them in compliance with the country’s increasingly complicated and changing workplace-related laws and regulations.
Nominees are evaluated by Lawdragon’s researchers, through each of the nominee’s peers and finally, through an editorial advisory board. Attorneys are assessed on experience, career accomplishments, professional leadership, client recommendations and impact within his or her firm and on the legal profession. Bar-discipline records and professional or personal missteps are also taken into account.
