Latham recognized for its pro bono commitment and community service.

Latham & Watkins has been recognized by the Alliance for Children’s Rights as a member of its inaugural Children’s Justice Council, a new distinction recognizing select law firms for their commitment to pro bono work and community service that improves the lives of vulnerable children in California. The Alliance for Children’s Rights is devoted to protecting the rights of abused, impoverished and neglected children and youth through free legal services, education and community training. Latham is among four law firms honored for donating the most hours to the Alliance. The firm’s efforts have included handling many special education cases and advocating for early childhood development services. Latham lawyers also are piloting a new program to help children seek child care benefits to which they are entitled. The Alliance noted: “With each issue, Latham develops extensive internal expertise and displays a deep commitment to our practice areas.”
