Latham topped seven finalist firms and earned recognition across categories, including in the Energy and Technology/Telecommunications sectors and Corporate Attorney of the Year.
The American Lawyer (AmLaw) named Latham & Watkins the 2022 Law Firm Corporate Practice of the Year at the publication’s annual Industry Awards. AmLaw selected Latham as the best among seven leading law firm finalists. The awards honor “those lawyers, business professionals, law firms, and organizations that are elevating the profession to new heights” and “shine a light on the best of the best—those firms that clients should call with their critical corporate work.”
In a feature article, AmLaw said: “Latham & Watkins’ evolution into a corporate leviathan was a deliberate, drawn-out path built on scope and scale, strong talent acquisition and the ability to work on matters for clients small and large in a variety of capacities. That investment culminated, over the second half of 2020 and through 2021, in perhaps one of the greatest runs a Big Law corporate department has ever seen.”
Latham was a finalist in four of AmLaw’s corporate practice categories, the most of any law firm, including:
- General/Overall achievement across a firm’s transactional work
- Corporate Attorney of the Year, which featured Bay Area Office Managing Partner Tad Freese as a finalist
