Business Minded Strategic Approach
A hallmark of Latham’s approach is a keen understanding of the client’s business objectives. Latham’s litigation strategy is tailored to the size of the matter, the client’s exposure or up-side, and the significance of the case to the client. Recognizing that litigation is just one part of a larger business strategy, Latham’s lawyers evaluate early exit options such as motions to dismiss, settlement, or summary judgment, as well as indemnification by third parties or insurance to minimize costs.

Over the past decade, Latham’s team has tried or arbitrated more than 350 cases to verdict in venues across the US and Europe.
