Litigation & Trial partner Colleen Smith has been honored by the San Diego Daily Transcript in its selection of Influential Women in San Diego. She was recognized as “a securities and commercial litigator who takes on big-dollar matters” for clients in business sectors including technology, life sciences, retail, and real estate.
Her published profile highlighted Smith’s lead role in Latham’s recent defense of Puma Biotechnology, Inc. in a securities class action that resulted in a rare and precedent-setting jury verdict. Smith was also cited for her notable pro bono legal projects, which have included seeking US citizenship for deported military veterans and removing barriers to military enlistment for lawful permanent residents.
