Jakson Lewis L.L.P., the national employment and labor law firm headquartered in White Plains, has opened an office in Puerto Rico, the firm’s first expansion outside the continental U.S.
Vincent A. Cino, chairman of Jackson Lewis, in a statement said the office will serve many of the firm’s major clients with substantial operations in the region. “We are thrilled to be the first U.S. employment boutique to ‘plant the flag’ in the commonwealth and are optimistic about our long-term prospects,” he said, adding that the office will complement Jackson Lewis’ involvement with L&E Global, an international alliance of boutique employment law firms founded in 2010.
“Our new office in Puerto Rico will open an important gateway to businesses operating in the Caribbean and Latin America,” said Cino.
Founded in 1958, Jackson Lewis exclusively represents management in workplace law. The firm employs 750 attorneys in 52 offices.
