Littler Adds Litigator Charles H. Wilson in Houston
Littler Mendelson has added Charles Wilson as a shareholder in its Houston office. He previously served as Vice Chair, Office Managing Partner at Cozen O’Connor’s Houston office and was a member of the labor and employment department.
“With deep roots in the region and more than 20 years of employment litigation experience, Charles is a fantastic addition to our talented team in Houston,” said Kelley Edwards, Littler’s Houston Office Managing Shareholder. “He brings an impressive track record defending clients in a range of employment-related matters and we are excited to welcome him to the firm.”
In a release, the firm said Wilson represents national and international companies in cases involving discrimination and harassment claims, wage and hour violations, whistleblowing and retaliation, workplace injury, breaches of contract and misappropriation of trade secrets, among other issues. He also counsels employers on traditional labor law matters, including collective bargaining and grievance labor arbitrations.
“Littler is known as a progressive and innovative firm with unparalleled subject matter knowledge in every area of labor and employment law,” Wilson said. “I’ve had opportunities in the past to work with many of the accomplished attorneys in Littler’s Houston office that I’m now honored to call colleagues. I look forward to leveraging the firm’s resources and extensive global platform to further expand my practice.”
The firm said Wilson’s addition is the latest in a string of attorneys who have joined Littler since the beginning of the year, including William Foster (Greenville, South Carolina), Devjani Mishra (New York), Anne LaWer (San Jose) and Bradley Schwan (Los Angeles and Orange County).
Wilson received his J.D., cum laude, from Texas Southern University-Thurgood Marshall School of Law and his B.A. from the University of Connecticut. He is board certified in labor and employment law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
