Littler Mendelson is the latest Am Law 100 firm to bet big on Germany.

The labor and employment giant has established its first presence outside the Americas following a merger with German labor and employment law boutique Vangard, the firm announced Monday. The combination gives Littler 21 lawyers across four offices in Germany: Berlin, Düsseldorf, Hamburg and Munich. The 1,000-lawyer firm now has 74 offices in 35 U.S. states and 14 countries outside of North America.
