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 and Berlin. . As of July 2014, the firm had 45 offices
in 25 states, Washington, DC, Europe 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.

labor and employment practice, including ranking high on
Corporate Counsel Magazine's list of top labor and
employment firms and Chamber's state rankings in the same
arena. In terms of clients, Ogletree assists everyone from
start-ups to more than half of the Fortune 50.
