CHICAGO (May 01, 2014) – Littler, the world’s largest employment and labor law practice representing management, has increased its shareholder ranks in Chicago with the addition of Philip (Phil) N. Storm, who will be a member of the firm’s Corporate Compliance and Ethics, International Employment Law, and Whistleblowing and Retaliation Practice Groups.
Storm joins Littler from Accenture, a multi-national management consulting and outsourcing company of more than 275,000 employees in over 50 countries, where he served as the Managing Director of Corporate Investigations. In that role, he built Accenture’s worldwide internal investigations function with primary responsibility for addressing all forms of legal and ethical non-compliance raised under the company’s Code of Ethics. In addition to his global role leading sensitive and high-risk legal investigations, his expertise spans all aspects of Accenture’s Ethics and Compliance program, from the development and management of its whistleblower line, designing its code of ethics and underlying policies, creating integrated reporting and trending protocols to identify and manage risk, and fashioning compliance training and communications. Additionally, Storm managed Accenture’s U.S. employment litigation function and provided legal counsel on employment law compliance.
“Phil’s wealth of compliance and ethics experience will nicely dovetail with the work we do on behalf of domestic and international clients, particularly in leading internal investigations and mitigating risk,” said Adam Wit, Chicago office managing shareholder. “He is a tremendous addition to our Littler team in Chicago and firm wide.”
At Littler, Storm will work with both domestic and international clients to address compliance and ethics issues and assist with planning and leading investigations for clients involving legal, ethics, and government regulatory issues.
