Lawcareers.net, a leading online resource for future lawyers and law firms, has awarded Latham & Watkins "Best Trainer – US law firm in the City" at its 11th annual LawCareers.Net Training & Recruitment Awards in London.
The awards, based on feedback from current trainees, assess firms on their recruitment process, the training they offer and the quality of their work placement schemes compared with their peers. Latham was praised for its approachable partners and structured program of performance reviews and training.
Catherine Drinnan, a partner in Latham & Watkins' London office who is also a member of the firm's Recruitment Committee, said: “This award is testament to the strength of the Latham trainee programme and the investment the firm makes in future talent. We have doubled our trainee intake since 2008 because we recognise that attracting and retaining the brightest trainees is crucial to the future success of our business.”
