Michele Johnson, Global Chair of Latham’s Litigation & Trial Department, is named to the prestigious annual list showcasing attorneys who have made a significant impact.
Latham’s Orange County office, one of the largest and most diverse law offices in the region, is home to many of California’s leading corporate, litigation, intellectual property, and environmental attorneys.
We are deeply embedded in the fabric of the region’s life sciences and technology industries, as well as Southern California’s dynamic real estate sector. We complement our local knowledge and experience with the resources and reach of Latham’s global platform, connecting local clients with opportunities around the world. Our corporate practice guides market-moving transactions locally and nationally that span the company life cycle, from early formation, to private and public capital raising, to mergers and acquisitions.
We support clients’ intellectual property with both strategic counseling and vigorous litigation. We also regularly represent clients in precedent-setting arbitrations, litigation, and trials, while our environmental practice works at the forefront of California law, representing clients in administrative proceedings, litigation, and enforcement. We leverage Latham’s deep expertise across a broad range of practice areas to meet the ever-expanding needs of our clients.
Latham is committed to giving back in each of the communities where we live and work. In Orange County, our pro bono causes include working with Community Legal Aid SoCal to decriminalize homelessness, working with The Ocean Cleanup to help deploy advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of trash, and advocating on behalf of survivors of domestic violence and abuse, as well as immigrants and asylum seekers.
