A former partner at Latham & Watkins pleaded guilty Friday to defrauding both clients and his own firm by charging them more than $300,000 in personal or false expenses. In announcing the guilty plea of Samuel A. Fishman, a mergers and acquisition specialist in Latham's New York office from 1993 to 2005, prosecutors noted that the firm had reimbursed its clients hundreds of thousands of dollars that had been fraudulently charged.
