Latham & Watkins has been named by Law360 among a select group of 2019 Firms of the Year for leading “the litigation wins and major deals that resonated throughout the legal industry in the past year."
The honor is based on Law360’s annual review of practice groups that paced the market during the past year. Latham won recognitions in the categories for bankruptcy, cybersecurity & privacy, life sciences, securities litigation, telecommunications, and white collar litigation.
In Latham’s published profile, firm leaders highlighted the cross-practice strengths that allow diverse attorney teams to advise clients in complex matters – particularly in industries such as life sciences, technology, and telecommunications, whose legal needs often span transactional, regulatory, and litigation areas. The article also focused on the firm’s “powerhouse” bankruptcy and restructurings group, calling out several recent high-profile matters and prominent lateral partners, including George Davis in New York and Jeff Bjork in Los Angeles.
