Employment law firm Littler Mendelson PC will relocate its San Francisco-based administrative services center to Kansas City in a move that’s expected to create 275 new jobs. The firm will consolidate 33 administrative offices at Crown Center, becoming the second major national firm to set up shop in the same building in the last year. In March 2014, California-based firm Sedgwick LLP announced it was hiring 100 workers at the Crown Center location.
Littler Mendelson employs more than 1,000 attorneys in 60 offices, including 16 attorneys in downtown Kansas City. The firm cited Kansas City’s low cost of living and location in the Central time zone as big factors in its decision to move the office there.
