Latham & Watkins earned the “Awards for Excellence” title in two categories at the Chambers USA 2016 awards: Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation and Insurance - Policyholder.
- Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation
“Latham & Watkins caps off an impressive year in the Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation space with this award. It remains a key player in the California and New York markets in particular, deploying a strong team of highly experienced as well as up-and-coming practitioners. The team has advised on executive compensation matters on some of the world's largest transactions of late,” reported Chambers USA.
- Insurance – Policyholder
“This highly respected practice is named as the winner of our Insurance: Policyholder category after prevailing in one of the most widely discussed and potentially far reaching cases of recent years in Fluor Corporation v. Superior Court. … and has widely been viewed as a landmark decision that will enable the transfer of insurance rights amid corporate acquisitions and reorganizations,” recognized Chambers USA.
According to Chambers USA, “[t]he awards are based on our research for the 2016 edition of Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business and reflect a law firm’s pre-eminence in key practice areas. They also reflect notable achievements over the past 12 months including outstanding work, impressive strategic growth and excellence in client service.”
