Latham & Watkins and Swiss leader Homburger have picked up the lead roles on the acquisition of a 9 percent stake in UBS by the investment arm of the government of Singapore -- a deal worth $9.7 billion. Latham is advising the sovereign wealth fund on the deal, fielding teams out of its Singapore and London offices, while Zurich-based Homburger is advising the Swiss banking giant. Local rival Niederer Kraft & Frey has also grabbed a slice of the action, advising the bidder on Swiss law issues.
