SAN DIEGO, CA (January 4, 2023) – Littler, the world’s largest employment and labor law practice representing management, has added Kim Carter as a shareholder in its San Diego office. Carter, who joins from Schor Vogelzang & Chung LLP, is a skilled litigator and counselor with more than a decade of experience representing employers.
“We are pleased to welcome Kim to the Littler family and look forward to adding her skillset to our talented team,” said Erin Webber, Littler’s managing director and president. “Coming off a year of significant lateral growth for the firm, we’re excited to kick off 2023 by adding Kim’s wide-ranging and impressive experience advising employers on their most pressing issues.”
Carter’s practice focuses on defending companies in an array of employment law matters, including wage and hour cases, claims of discrimination and harassment, wrongful terminations, and Private Attorneys General Act (PAGA) cases. She represents clients in complex class action cases, as well as single plaintiff litigation matters, arbitrations and mediations. In addition to her litigation practice, Carter regularly provides counsel on issues that arise in the employer-employee relationship, including leave and disability accommodation, performance management and evaluations, employee misclassification, and investigations.
“Helping employers navigate California’s stringent employment laws and guiding them through complex workplace disputes is no easy task, but Kim has demonstrated an ability to consistently and effectively represent her clients in these high-stakes matters,” said Al McLaughlin, Littler’s regional office managing shareholder for the San Diego office. “Kim’s breadth of experience makes her precisely the type of well-rounded lawyer our clients in San Diego and across the country are seeking. We excited to have her aboard.”
“Throughout my career I’ve sought to enhance my approach to client service and provide the guidance employers need to manage the many challenges that arise in the workplace. This move to Littler helps me accomplish both,” said Carter. “Littler not only provides the resources and robust platform for me to expand my services to clients, but I’ve been so impressed by the deep knowledge and skills of the firm’s attorneys in San Diego and beyond. I look forward to collaborating with this talented group of practitioners and for the opportunity to join the premier employment law firm in the world.”
