Latham & Watkins has been named 2019 Banking and Finance Firm of the Year at the annual JUVE awards ceremony. Germany’s leading legal publication attributed Latham’s march to the top to the firm’s “persistence and tactical cleverness.” JUVE notes, “More than 40 LBO transactions prove Latham’s success in loans and acquisition financing. In addition, there are many renowned clients, who rely on the firm's advice for groundbreaking financings. Since Oliver Seiler joined the firm, the firm's presence in major transactions in equity capital market law has also increased considerably. Numerous IPO mandates, such as the IPO of Home24, testify to the trust Latham enjoys among investment banks.”
Recognized as a key indicator of strategic positioning in the German market, the JUVE awards are based on rankings from the annual JUVE Handbook as well as comprehensive consultation with clients and competitors.
