Many cultures consider the tattoo a religious symbol. Littler Mendelson is no exception.

At Littler, “tattooing” refers to client contact and how the firm compensates its partners. How it works is simple: The first partner to do business for a client — no matter how small the matter — can “tattoo” that client as his own. As long as that partner remains breathing and with the firm, no other partner — without permission — can get billing credit for work done on behalf of that client.
