National Office

Latham’s National Office helps clients and Latham lawyers arrive at the right result when the toughest securities law questions arise. Led by former senior officials of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and experienced capital markets lawyers based in Washington, D.C., the team draws upon the deep expertise of dozens of Latham partners in all securities law disciplines across our global platform.

In areas such as US capital markets and M&A transactions, public company reporting, accounting-related issues, SEC investigations, and shareholder activism, knowing the complexities of the law is hard enough. Knowing the lore and market practice is even harder. But the ultimate challenge is to blend all of that into advice that is practical and timely, and that appropriately calibrates risks and possible outcomes.

Our National Office can do just that. We draw on our decades of transactional experience and service in senior positions at the SEC to help clients and Latham lawyers determine the best answer when faced with the thorniest securities law issues.

We pride ourselves on responsiveness, technical expertise, and ability to find innovative solutions that accomplish a client’s objectives without undue risk. We relish cutting through complexity and jargon to deliver clear, action-oriented advice. To that end, we regularly publish plain-English thought leadership that is practical, user-friendly, and widely read on complex topics and breaking developments.
