MINNEAPOLIS, MN (September 16, 2013) - Littler Mendelson, P.C. (Littler), the world’s largest employment and labor law firm representing management, has appointed Andrew Voss office managing shareholder (OMS) of the firm's Minneapolis office, effective January 1, 2014. Voss, one of the founding lawyers of the office in 1998, will succeed George Wood, who has served as OMS since 2008. Wood will return to his practice at Littler, focusing on discrimination and employment litigation and counseling.
“George has been a tremendous leader, and we are appreciative of his many contributions to the firm,” Tom Bender and Jeremy Roth, co-managing directors of Littler, said in a joint statement. “We are pleased to have Andrew take over this role. He is an exceptional attorney who is well regarded by both clients and colleagues, and we are confident that Andrew’s vision for the future will further enhance the trajectory of the office.”
Voss said, as one of the founding members of the office, he is excited to assume the leadership position. “George has led our team here in Minneapolis through significant growth over the past six years,” stated Voss. “I look forward to further developing the office and strengthening Littler’s local and national footprint while continuing to deliver high quality legal service and representation to clients throughout the Midwest.”
Voss represents employers spanning multiple industries in collective, class and hybrid wage and hour actions brought under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and state law. He has successfully defeated conditional certification in a number of nationwide collective actions and has resolved many other cases involving the complicated legal issues that arise in wage and hour litigation. His practice also focuses on consulting with a wide range of employers on wage and hour compliance, ensuring best practices, and avoiding class action litigation. Voss’ experience includes trial and appellate practice in both state and federal courts across the country.
In addition to his active practice, Voss serves as a member of the firm’s Class Action and Wage and Hour Practice Groups, the Diversity & Inclusion Council, and as chair of Littler’s LGBTA Affinity Group. He has authored numerous articles and spoken before internal and external groups on a broad range of labor and employment topics.
Voss received his J.D. from the University of Minnesota Law School (1993) and his B.A. from the University of Wisconsin – Madison (1987).
