  • San Francisco, CA (1888PressRelease) February 03, 2012 - Littler Mendelson, P.C. (Littler), the nation's largest employment and labor law firm representing management, has named Eric Bellafronto office managing shareholder (OMS) of its Silicon Valley office. Bellafronto succeeds Dennis Brown, who served in the OMS capacity for ten years and has been instrumental in the success of the office.

    "We applaud Dennis for his successful tenure and look forward to Eric's leadership," said Marko Mrkonich, president and managing director of Littler. "Eric is deeply rooted in San Jose and we are confident that his connections to the local business community combined with his effective management skills will further expand the firm's footprint throughout the region."

    "I am honored to lead the Silicon Valley office as it approaches its 33rd anniversary in San Jose," added Bellafronto. "San Jose and the Silicon Valley are home to the most innovative employers, large and small, and we are well-equipped to help them navigate the ever-changing and complex labor and employment law environment so they can focus on their core business."

    A practicing attorney for over 20 years, Bellafronto represents a wide range of employers in a dual role as litigator and counselor. He works with employers to avoid litigation through counseling and the implementation of effective policies and procedures. When litigation arises, he regularly handles cases in California trial courts and administrative tribunals involving wage and hour matters, workplace safety and health, discrimination and harassment, business restructuring and unfair competition and trade secret law.

    A sought-after speaker, Bellafronto regularly provides manager skills training for clients as well as anti-harassment training. Bellafronto has taught classes on a variety of labor and employment subjects at the University of California, Santa Cruz extension.

    In addition to his active practice, Bellafronto performs pro bono work for the Catholic Foundation of Santa Clara County and spearheads the San Jose office's annual holiday charity drive for the Bill Wilson Center, supporting abused, neglected and foster children.
