Updated: Two employment law firms continue to expand.
Littler Mendelson is merging with another labor and employment law firm, Kiesewetter Wise Kaplan Prather in Memphis.
Littler Mendelson opened a Nashville office last year, its first in the state. With the Memphis merger, Littler has a second office in Tennessee and 56 offices nationwide.
Meanwhile, another employment law firm is also expanding. Jackson Lewis has added six lawyers in Milwaukee with the acquisition of Simandl & Prentice, the Am Law Daily says. The firm already has a lawyer in Milwaukee who will be joining the others.
