Disruption, uncertainty and austerity will forever be linked with COVID-19. But so will big gains. And few firms made more out of a challenging situation in the past year than Latham & Watkins.
Firm leaders say increased demand across the board helped solidify the firm’s place in the upper echelon of the Am Law 100, with a revenue increase of 15% and profits per partner up nearly 20%. At $4.3 billion, Latham is now secure as the second-largest firm in the country by revenue, more than a billion dollars ahead of its closest competitor.
