Latham revenue hike sparks hiring spree
Lawyer;7/4/2005, Vol. 19 Issue 26, p8
The article reports that the law firm Latham & Watkins has capitalised on two consecutive years of impressive financial results by initiating a spate of lateral hires from rivals. The Los Angeles-based firm has made seven lateral hires within the U.S. and a further one in Japan, bolstering the firm's antitrust litigation, communication, corporate and finance practices globally. Most notably, the firm has doubled its Washington D.C.-based antitrust litigation practice to six partners following the hire of three partners from global antitrust litigation and IP specialists Howrey.
