Book of Jargon®

Latham has published several editions of the Book of Jargon®, which are intended to assist the members of the financial community in learning (or re- learning) to "talk the talk" of banking, capital markets, project finance, master limited partnerships, and mergers and acquisitions. If you are a recent business or law school graduate, or perhaps a not-so recent graduate, these apps are for you.

Download the Global Anti-Bribery & Corruption Laws App

Global Merger Regimes™ Application

Latham & Watkins has developed a Global Merger Regimes™ Application (app) for the iPhone, iPad and iPod. The app was designed as a reference tool for in-house counsel and lawyers who practice in the M&A and antitrust and competition areas, putting the information required for a preliminary assessment of such issues available at the touch of a finger.

From Albania to Zambia, the app provides a database of merger regimes for more than 80 countries. This information is important in the M&A process, as transactions may require approval from competition authorities around the world. Such review may impact the feasibility of a particular transaction and often the timeline to closing.
