NEW YORK (March 10, 2017) – Littler, the world’s largest employment and labor law practice representing management, has selected Shareholder Lauren Schwartzreich for the 2017 Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) class of fellows. The landmark program was created by LCLD to identify, train and advance the next generation of leaders in the legal profession. Littler attorneys have participated in the LCLD Fellows Program since 2012.
“Lauren has exceptional client service and leadership skills, and we are proud to have her represent Littler as part of the LCLD Fellows Program,” said Bruce Millman, office managing shareholder of Littler’s New York office.
According to LCLD President Robert J. Grey, Jr., the LCLD Fellows Program offers participants “an extraordinarily rich year of relationship-building, in-person training, peer-group projects and extensive contact with LCLD’s top leadership.”
During the year, each honoree embarks on a learning program that includes in-person conferences, training in the fine points of legal practice, peer-group projects to foster collaboration and build relationships and extensive contact with LCLD’s top leadership, including managing partners and general counsel.
"Our fellows program is a unique learning experience designed to empower a new generation of lawyers," said Laura Stein, LCLD chair and executive vice president and general counsel of the Clorox Corp., in a press release issued by LCLD. "These talented individuals have been singled out for leadership by their organizations and represent a broad spectrum of backgrounds."
Schwartzreich, who is a member of Littler’s eDiscovery group, advises clients on cutting-edge legal strategies and technology solutions to efficiently manage electronic discovery in all types of employment litigation matters, including initial preservation obligations; data harvesting, review and production; cost-shifting and cost-reduction; and the admissibility of electronic evidence at trial. She also was involved in the development of the firm’s Littler CaseSmart® model for class and collective actions.
Schwartzreich also serves as chair of the American Bar Association’s Annual Institute on eDiscovery and is an active member of the Sedona Conference® Working Group 1.
