Powerhouse labor boutique Littler opens first office in Canada
A growing international labor and employment boutique based in the U.S. has opened its first office in Canada.
Littler Mendelson announced the new Toronto office Tuesday, saying that it will initially be staffed with seven lawyers from two Canadian firms.
The office will be the 67th for the 1,000-attorney law firm, American Lawyer (sub. req.) reports.
Littler has been thinking about planting its flag in Canada for several years, and the new office in Toronto “is a logical extension of what we’ve done in Latin America,” said Thomas Bender, the firm’s co-president and managing director. Being positioned in a broad array of offices to serve clients throughout the world is, he said, “where the practice of law is going.”
