The nation's biggest labor boutique has set up shop in Orlando, Florida, with six attorneys raided from the local office of a rival multistate employment firm.
Littler Mendelson, headquartered in San Francisco, opened an Orlando office on June 1 staffed with six attorneys from Fisher & Phillips, which has offices in five southern states, according to bizjournals.com.
Carlos Burruezo is managing partner of the new office, which is Littler's second in Florida and 43rd in the country, reports the Orlando Sentinel. Littler also has an office in Miami, as does the Fisher firm.
