LOS ANGELES—Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp LLP (MSK) announced today that Jeremy Mittman has joined the firm’s Los Angeles office as a partner in its Labor & Employment Department. Mittman arrives from Proskauer Rose LLP where, for the past 15 years, he has represented management clients in a broad range of employment-related matters across a variety of industries, including financial services, security services and media and entertainment.
Mittman defends employers, at the trial and appellate court levels, in litigation involving wrongful discharge, sexual harassment, wage and hour class actions, breach of contract and employment discrimination. He also specializes in privacy and data security, and a large part of his practice focuses on international employment matters. He works with clients on multi-country HR projects involving issues such as data privacy in Global Human Resources Information Systems, multi-country employment contracts, international background checks, terminations and other HR actions.
“MSK is thrilled to add a partner of Jeremy’s quality to our growing Labor & Employment Department,” said MSK’s Chairman Kevin Gaut. “His deep trial experience, data privacy expertise, and mastery of a host of different international employment issues, will be valuable in helping our clients achieve their business goals.”
Recognized as a Southern California Super Lawyer (2017-2018), Mittman also advises clients on compliance with employment-related laws and assists with the development, implementation and enforcement of personnel policies and procedures. He regularly assists clients with complying with the EU Data Protection Directive and has substantial experience in drafting Safe Harbor certifications to the US Department of Commerce, as well as model contractual clauses to comply with EU law.
“MSK has built a reputation for successfully handling hugely consequential employment-related matters for a diverse cross-section of industries, and I couldn’t be happier to be a part of their accomplished team,” said Mittman. “I look forward to helping the firm’s clients navigate the ever-evolving U.S. and international employment and data protection laws.”
