It may be physically impossible to be in two places at once, but Alan McLaughlin may achieve the feat practically in his role as managing shareholder over two offices — in two different time zones.
“I used to meet with all of my attorneys at 9:30 for morning meetings, but now it’ll be by phone,” he said. “And it will be 7:30 for me.”
McLaughlin has been the office managing shareholder for Littler Mendelson’s Indianapolis location since 2012, and now he will serve in the same role simultaneously for its Denver office, the firm announced July 29. He succeeds Erin Webber, who helmed the firm’s Kansas City, Missouri, office when it opened in 2006 until 2010, when she took over the Colorado office until recently.
The firm is one of the largest employment and labor law firms in existence focusing on representing management with a fleet of more than 1,000 attorneys in 70 offices globally. Littler has offices in 34 states and Washington, D.C., with several concentrated in New England and California, and 14 other countries besides the U.S.
