Littler Mendelson set to launch 2 offices in Mexico after gaining 24 local lawyers

December 22, 2011 Labor and employment boutique Littler Mendelson is set to open two new offices in Mexico after gaining 24 lawyers from full-service Mexican firm Basham, Ringe & Correa.

The group of Mexican lawyers, led by Oscar De la Vega, will launch bases in Mexico City and Monterrey under the name Littler, De la Vega y Conde.

Littler president and managing director Marko Mrkonich described the move as "the next logical step in developing an ability to answer employers questions and provide their needs on a global basis."

De la Vega says most of his existing clients are publicly held U.S.–based companies doing business in Mexico, including 3M, General Electric, Hilton Hotels, MasterCard, Oracle, Ritz-Carlton, and Weyerhaeuser. He says he also expects his group to land assignments from the growing number of Mexican companies beginning to expand internationally.
