Latham advises many of the top market players in Southern California and around the globe, from startups to private equity firms, media companies, financial institutions, and multinationals.

Office Overview

Founded in Los Angeles in 1934, Latham’s first office remains one of its largest and serves as home base for many of the firm’s top-ranked corporate, litigation, finance, tax, and private equity lawyers.

Latham’s LA-based lawyers routinely rank among the top tier of practitioners in California and globally across transactional, litigation, and regulatory practices. Working closely with colleagues around the world, the LA team serves businesses ranging from early stage companies to global market leaders in all of Southern California’s key industries, including technology, entertainment, life sciences, finance, real estate, and private equity.

Giving Back

As one of the world’s largest pro bono providers, Latham takes on matters in nearly every area of public interest law.

In Los Angeles, lawyers dedicate significant pro bono time to causes including individual adoptions and guardianships, fair housing and tenants’ rights, Holocaust reparations, Innocence Project cases, and special education.

Pro Bono & Public Service

The Los Angeles office is a long-standing community leader, providing millions of dollars in pro bono legal services and raising significant funding for local non-profits each year. This office has achieved victories in pro bono matters that run the gamut from child rights advocacy and land use to asylum and civil rights protection.

Among the more recent pro bono projects, a team of lawyers from the Los Angeles office helped lead an effort to obtain pensions for Holocaust survivors who worked in German-controlled ghettos during World War II.

In the area of community service, the lawyers and professional staff from the Los Angeles office have helped prominent non-profit organizations raise awareness and funding. The Los Angeles office is an annual supporter of the 'Food From the Bar' campaign and raised more than US$80,000 for the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank in 2013, which provides meals to children, the elderly and families in Los Angeles who would otherwise go hungry.

Market sources comment: “[Latham] has always been a powerhouse in LA.”
