We regularly represent clients facing criminal, civil, and congressional investigations, litigation in all US courts, and the full range of commercial disputes. Our courtroom victories regularly earn Latham recognition from National Law Journal as among the very best litigators and trial lawyers in Washington.
Unique among firms in the capital, we combine classic litigation and regulatory practices with our premier transactional practices, which include the largest and most successful corporate/M&A, capital markets, private equity, and leveraged finance practices in Washington.
