Littler recruits BABC partner

Attorney focuses on immigration work as well as employment cases

Global employment law firm Littler Mendelson has added Joycelyn Stevenson as a shareholder in the firm’s Nashville office. Stevenson was previously a partner with Bradley Arant Boult Cummings who focuses on labor and employment and business immigration law.

Stevenson, who had been at BABC since September 2001, works with clients in a number of sectors, with a particular emphasis on health care. Her immigration practice covers I-9 and E-Verify compliance as well as non-immigrant and immigrant visa work for foreign employees.

“I am pleased to welcome Joycelyn to our growing team here in Nashville,” said Nashville Office Managing Shareholder Jennifer Robinson. “Her wide scope of labor and employment expertise, including a specialty in immigration, will add tremendous value and serve our expanding regional, national and global client base well.”

Stevenson is a member of the board of directors of the Nashville Bar Association and the Nashville Farmers’ Market.  She also serves as president of the Council on Aging of Greater Nashville and is immediate past president of the Lawyers’ Association for Women, Marion Griffin Chapter.

Littler opened its Nashville office in the spring of 2011 on West End Avenue. It recently relocated that office, which is now home to seven attorneys, to downtown’s AT&T Building.
