Laner Muchin, Ltd. is one of the oldest and largest law firms in the country concentrating exclusively in representing employers in the field of labor, employment law, business immigration and employee benefits.
Established in 1945 by one of the drafters of the law which eventually became the National Labor Relations Act and the first head of the legal staff of the National Labor Relations Board’s Chicago Regional Office, the Firm currently provides a full range of labor and employment services to a large and diverse public and private sector client base. We represent our clients in litigation before federal and state trial and appellate courts and administrative agencies. We also provide advice and counsel with respect to all applicable labor and employment laws, matters involving labor unions and a broad range of human resources and personnel issues. We also offer comprehensive services relating to employee benefit plans, as well as a full range of business immigration services.
Our clients are located throughout the United States, in Canada, Mexico, and in a number of European and Asian countries. They employ from 2 to over 100,000 employees. We represent such diverse clients as manufacturing companies, banks, hospitals and health care facilities, computer and data processing service firms, communications companies, hotels, construction firms, distribution firms, mines and real estate investment companies. Our clients include municipalities, a major league baseball team, an NBA basketball team, large public universities, public television stations, a classical music radio station, major national manufacturers, one of the world's largest restaurant chains, a broad range of charitable and not-for-profit organizations and a number of the country’s largest insurance companies.
Many of our original clients are still with us, and we have served most of our clients for more than ten years. At the outset, many clients were extremely small but they have grown substantially, some to a point where their workforces number in the thousands. Our own growth has kept pace with, and is largely the result of, the growth of our clients. That is why we value our relationships not only with larger clients but also with those small clients just starting out on the road to success.
