BTI Consulting Group has cited Latham & Watkins as a leading litigation firm across diverse practices in its BTI Litigation Outlook 2017 report. Based on interviews with more 300 corporate counsel, the independent research organization named Latham a “powerhouse” for intellectual property litigation, securities and finance litigation, complex commercial litigation, complex employment litigation and product liability.
According to BTI, the annual report reflects “unbiased, direct feedback from clients on more than 200 individual law firms.” Specifically, BTI interviewed “leading legal decision makers” that included heads of litigation, chief legal officers, general counsel and chiefs and vice presidents of litigation at organizations spanning more than 15 industry segments.
“Complex work drives corporate counsel to use law firms they know understand their risk tolerance, culture and business. Clients place Latham squarely in this group of firms who they turn to for their most pressing litigation needs across the board,” said Michael Ryonwecer, President of BTI Consulting Group.
With litigators located in major business centers around the world, Latham offers a premiere practice combining top-quality litigation skill with substantial lead trial experience. The team’s solutions-based approach focuses on clients’ business considerations, while planning for the possibility of trial from the outset. Broad practice experience, a formidable courtroom reputation, and a remarkable track record of success in both civil and criminal cases further distinguish Latham as a leading firm for wide-ranging litigation work.
