September 29, 2017
Sophisticated transactions, local roots and global reach earn recognition.

Law360 named Latham & Watkins a “Texas Powerhouse” citing complex transactions and a “one firm” philosophy as key factors that place the firm among the top players in Texas. Law360 noted that Latham lawyers doing work in Texas have “…established it as a firm that is able to handle complex and sophisticated transactions in the competitive Texas energy market.” Law360 also noted key deals and wins across the corporate and litigation departments including those in the capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property and appellate practices. 

In the article, Houston Corporate Department Chair, Ryan Maierson says: “Latham prides itself on being one firm around the world, and while that sounds like a marketing slogan, it's amazingly true in practice." The publication went on to mention that Latham is client-focused, continuing to build an office with local ties to the city. 

Of the honor, Houston Office Managing Partner, Sean Wheeler said: “We are pleased to be recognized for the great work our lawyers have done in this competitive Texas market. It is a true testament to the dedication, global platform and culture at the firm.”
