Phil Sandick is an associate in the Washington, D.C. office of Latham & Watkins.

Mr. Sandick’s experience includes trial and appellate litigation, compliance counseling, and transactional work across the environmental spectrum. He represents public and private companies, private equity funds, First Nations, and other entities in everything from leveraged financings to rulemaking comments, and from small-scale projects to class actions before the US Supreme Court. 

Mr. Sandick maintains an active pro bono practice, representing individuals seeking habeas release, asylum, and civil penalties for violations of civil rights under Section 1983. He won an Eleventh Circuit en banc appeal that changed the law so prisoners in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama can now seek punitive damages for violations of their constitutional rights that do not have accompanying physical injuries.

Before entering private practice, Mr. Sandick clerked with Hon. Amy Totenberg in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia. He also worked with the International Criminal Court leading up to its first sentencing and the United Nations Open Working Group on Sustainable Development Goals leading up to the establishment of the SDGs.

He is actively involved in the community as a member of the Access to Justice Committee for the State Bar of Georgia. Mr. Sandick is also a conceptual photographer and mixed-media artist whose works can be found in public and private collections in the US and abroad.
