A Deep, Global Team

As businesses continue to globalize, they need a law firm that can handle complex matters unfolding at breakneck speed and involving several practice specialties. Latham’s Litigation & Trial Practice meets that challenge.

Described as a “go-to firm for big, bet-the-company kinds of cases” by The American Lawyer, our litigators demonstrate a strategic command of a case from the start, and a willingness to try even the most difficult cases. We give clients the confidence to take a matter to trial — and win.

With more than 600 litigators located in 19 major business centers in the United States, Europe and Asia, we are one of the few firms capable of providing clients with immediate, high-quality legal expertise anywhere in the world, whether our clients' needs are local or multijurisdictional.

Courtroom Warriors

Our trial lawyers have a remarkable track record of success trying both civil and criminal cases in courts around the world. During the last decade, Latham has tried or arbitrated more than 350 cases to a verdict, earning an extraordinary winning percentage.

Our team collectively offers clients the unique insight and experience that comes only from decades of trial experience. And with 17 former US federal prosecutors, Latham's lawyers use their knowledge of the inner workings of government agencies to help clients navigate enforcement proceedings and litigation.

We are frequently retained on the eve of trial when a client needs a firm with a formidable courtroom reputation and the resources to try a case. For the cases that do not go to trial, our extensive trial experience and shrewd negotiation skills result in the best settlements. Our trial lawyers work hand-in-hand with the firm’s premier Supreme Court & Appellate Practice to ensure that issues are preserved for appeal.
