January 05, 2021


With the addition of two new attorneys to its deep Employment and Labor practice bench, Parsons Behle & Latimer (Parsons) now offers clients employment-based immigration legal services as well as establishes an employment and labor practice in its Reno, Nev. office.

New attorneys to join the firm are Salt Lake City-based Jacob T. Muklewicz, who counsels and advises large multinational corporations, local businesses, individuals, investors and professionals in areas involving employment-based immigration law; and Laurence B. Irwin, who has worked extensively with Department of Energy contractors in southern Nevada on various employment matters and served as a member of the Judge Advocate General’s Corps for the Nevada National Guard. He has experience litigating federal employment cases.

Our Employment & Labor practice team is recognized as one of the most experienced in the region,” Parsons’ Employment & Labor Practice Chair Sean Monson says. “The addition of these two talented and knowledgeable attorneys enhances our team’s already extensive knowledge base and skill set.  We now can provide immigration advice and counseling services to all our clients and a full range of employment and labor counseling services to our clients in Nevada. We are very pleased to welcome these attorneys to our team.”

Parsons maintains one of the largest and most proficient employment law teams in the Intermountain West, including Utah, Idaho, Montana and now, Nevada. The employment practice team is known for its Annual Employment Law Seminar, offered for the past 32 years, which has provided employment law training for thousands of human resource professionals, in-house counsel, business owners and clients. During 2020, due to the pandemic, the seminar was offered virtually to clients and friends of the firm in Utah, Idaho, Nevada and Montana to help keep clients apprised of COVID-related and rapidly-changing employment laws.
