The national labor and employment law firm Constangy, Brooks, Smith & Prophete, LLP has formed an Of Counsel affiliate relationship with the firm of Cross, Gunter, Witherspoon & Galchus, P.C., (“CGWG”) a highly respected labor and employment boutique law firm based in Little Rock. This affiliation expands Constangy’s nationwide reach and allows the two firms to work collaboratively in providing the highest level of service to both firms’ clients.

CGWG attorneys will help serve Constangy clients when they have legal needs in Arkansas and surrounding states. Constangy’s nationwide capabilities will be a valuable resource for CGWG clients with national needs – particularly in California where Constangy has established a significant presence over the past four years.

"CGWG and Constangy have similar philosophies – we share the same commitment to providing outstanding service, and we both focus on building teams of high-quality, diverse attorneys who really understand what clients need in today’s rapidly changing workplaces," said Neil H. Wasser, chair of Constangy’s executive committee. "Arkansas is a market well positioned for growth, and we’re excited to be able to offer these new resources for our clients with interests in the region.”

“This collaboration is a great fit for our firm and our clients," said Carolyn Witherspoon, director and founding partner at CGWG. "Many of our clients have interests across the country and will benefit from access to the wide network of experienced attorneys that Constangy has to offer. It makes us stronger, giving us the resources and presence of a larger firm while maintaining the flexibility and focus that have defined our brand in Arkansas for more than 20 years.”

Chambers USA has ranked CGWG among the top labor and employment firms in Arkansas for the past 15 years. U.S. News Best Law Firms also ranks the firm in its top tier of firms in the state. Several of the firm’s 22 attorneys hold individual rankings from Chambers USA, Best Lawyers, Martindale Hubbell and others.

Both firms represent employers of all sizes in areas related to labor and employment law, with strong focus on industries including manufacturing, construction, health care, retail, transportation, education, banking and finance, hospitality, governmental, state and municipal entities.
