Mover’s spotlight

Name: Dr. Larry S. Perlman

New position: Partner at Foley & Lardner, based in the firm’s Miami office. He is a member of the firm’s labor and employment practice and the automotive and healthcare industry teams.

From: Attorney at the firm.

About: A litigation attorney, Dr. Perlman routinely represents employers in state and federal courts throughout the nation, as well as in administrative agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and National Labor Relations Board. In addition to representing clients nationwide, his practice also involves assisting clients with day-to-day human resource issues. He has handled claims involving employment discrimination and harassment under federal and state law, as well as common law tort and contract actions. Perlman was senior counsel before he joined the firm in 2008.

Education: He has a bachelor’s in biomedical sciences, M.D. and J.D., all from the University of Michigan.

Best advice: The best advice I have ever received is “talk less — listen more” — a remarkably difficult endeavor for me. So much of my professional growth has come from listening to and understanding clients, as well as observing fellow practitioners.
