Littler Mendelson is the largest labor and employment law firm in the world. It counts more than 1,000 lawyers in 70 offices, domestically and internationally, with particularly strong outposts in Mexico, Canada, Venezuela, and Germany.

Veteran class action litigator Garry Mathiason, a short time ago, traded his management role as firm chairman for a new challenge, co-chairing the firm’s emergent Robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Automation practice group. Mathiason recently sat down in his San Francisco office with ALM Director of Intelligence Dirk Olin to discuss the new group as well as the brave new world of the law machine.
