2 min read

Wright Lindsey Jennings LLP of Little Rock announced that Jane A. Kim is the new head of the law firm’s labor and employment team.

A Chicago-area native, Kim has been practicing in the employment law field since 2007, when she moved to Little Rock to start her legal career at WLJ. She succeeds Michelle Kaemmerling as leader of the firm’s 10-member labor and employment Team.

“Jane has a long history of leadership at WLJ and representing our state’s employers,” Steve Lancaster, WLJ managing partner, said in a statement. “As any business leader knows, our employees are truly our greatest resource. I’m proud to have one of the most highly regarded labor and employment teams in the region and I look forward to Jane’s continued leadership in the firm and the HR community.”

According to a news release from WLJ, Jane maintains an active litigation practice, primarily defending a wide range of clients in state and federal court actions — including class and collective actions — involving claims under the various civil rights laws and the wage and hour laws, and claims related to employment agreements, covenants not to compete, and trade secrets.

She also regularly provides advice and training on employment law compliance and represents employers in state and federal government agency investigations.

Kim serves on the Federal Practice Committee for the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas. In 2023, she was named to Arkansas Business’ “Arkansas 250,” recognizing the 250 most influential Arkansans in the business community. She’s also a member of the Arkansas Business 40 Under 40 class of 2018 and was named to Little Rock Soiree’s inaugural Women to Watch list.
