February 1, 2024
The templates enable public companies to efficiently create questionnaires required for disclosures.

Latham & Watkins has partnered with Diligent, a leading GRC SaaS company, to launch the Latham Director & Officer (D&O) questionnaire templates within the Diligent One Platform. With the questionnaire templates’ integration into the Diligent One Platform, public companies can now easily and efficiently collect customizable information from directors and senior executives required for disclosure in annual reports and proxy statements filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission. Latham will update the templates annually based on legal and regulatory developments and market standards.

Julia Thompson, a partner in Latham & Watkins’ Washington, D.C. office and member of the firm’s Public Company & Board Representation Practice, said: “We are excited to see Latham’s D&O Templates integrated into the Diligent One Platform. Latham’s D&O Templates, which leverage the firm’s deep knowledge and experience, are intuitive, user-friendly questionnaires that will help board members and C-suite executives more efficiently and effectively complete a rigorous filing process, in particular during proxy season. Latham’s focus on innovation is a hallmark of our firm, and the collaboration with Diligent exemplifies our innovative, market-leading practice.”
