of labor and employment law who provide efficient, client-focused
service to clients. The firm's labor and employment law practices

Planting Flags Around the World
Since its founding, Ogletree has grown substantially, adding new
offices every few years until the last decade, when the firm opened
multiple offices per year in cities from Memphis to St. Louis to
Miami. Most recently, the firm launched offices in New York City,
London, Berlin, Mexico City, and Canada. The firm now has 49
offices in 27 states, Washington, D.C., Europe, Mexico, Canada, and
the U.S. Virgin Islands. Recession-era layoff legal issues and the
emergence of new federal labor regulations has helped spur
Ogletree's continued growth.
The firm has scooped up some accolades for its management-side
labor and employment practice, including being named the Employment
Law - Management "Law Firm of the Year" for 2016 by U.S.
News - Best Lawyers, ranking high on both Corporate
Counsel Magazine's and Chambers USA's lists of top
labor and employment firms. Ogletree also has more than 190
attorneys listed in the 2016 edition of Best Lawyers. In
terms of clients, Ogletree assists everyone from start-ups to more
than half of the Fortune 50.
