Littler has added Bradley E. Schwan as a shareholder in the Los Angeles and Orange County offices. He was previously an attorney in Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP’s labor and employment practice.

“Littler’s presence in Southern California continues to grow and we are excited to add Brad to our robust California team,” said Shannon Boyce, office managing shareholder of Littler’s Los Angeles offices. “Brad’s background, particularly his experience representing clients in class action litigation matters, will be valuable as we continue to help our clients navigate a rapidly evolving regulatory landscape.”

In a release, the firm said Schwan defends employers in wage and hour class action litigation, and against claims of wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment and individual wage and hour violations in litigation and in front of administrative agencies. He also advises on matters involving breach of contract, noncompetition and non-solicitation, and claims of employee poaching. Schwan’s practice also includes helping employers design and implement workplace policies that comply with labor and employment laws in California and nationwide.

“I have worked side by side with Littler attorneys in the past and have always been impressed with their depth of knowledge on labor and employment matters,” Schwan said. “It’s exciting to join a firm that has a deep understanding of the wide-ranging issues facing employers and a commitment to developing new and innovative tools to better serve clients.”

Schwan received his J.D. from the University of California, Los Angeles, School of Law and his B.S. in Systems Engineering from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Before starting his legal career, he served on active duty in the United States Army as a field artillery officer and military intelligence officer for six years.
