Citing the firm’s wealth of talented practitioners and successful representation of clients in “bet-the-company” cases, Law360 has named the White Collar Defense & Investigations Group of Latham & Watkins a “White Collar Practice Group of the Year.” In an article recognizing the accomplishments of the group, Law360 highlighted a number of key high-profile wins.
Discussing the deep bench of talent the firm has to offer and recent high-profile hires, Law 360 wrote, “This year, the firm made several high-profile additions to its top-flight roster, including John Sikora, who joined the firm in its Chicago office after 16 years at the SEC, and Michael Fee in the Boston office, who brought with him 25 years’ experience in private practice. Kathryn Ruemmler returned to the firm in July after five and a half years in the White House Counsel's Office, where she worked as President Barack Obama's longest-serving counsel, and Jonathan Su recently came back to Latham & Watkins after serving in the White House Counsel's Office from 2012 to 2014 and previously as an assistant U.S. attorney in the District of Maryland.”
The article also quotes David Schindler, co-chair of the firm’s White Collar Defense & Investigations Group, regarding Latham’s strong team approach, “At the end of the day, one or two people just can't do it. Our success is driven by the fact we have a team."
