Latham & Watkins Profile


Latham & Watkins was established in the US in 1934, by Dana Latham and Paul Watkins. The firm gradually diversified its practice to become a full-service, international law firm, which was voted as the ‘Law Firm of the Decade’ by Legal Business in 2007.

The first office was established in Los Angeles; thereafter offices in Orange County, Washington, D.C., San Diego, Chicago and New York followed. International expansion began in 1990 with the opening of an office in London, followed by offices in Brussels, Barcelona, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Rome, Madrid, Moscow, Munich, Paris, Milan and Düsseldorf.

The Asian market was covered with an office in Hong Kong in 1994, followed by offices in Tokyo, Shanghai, Beijing and Singapore. In 2008 the firm opened four offices in the Middle East, in Doha, Riyadh, Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

At present, the firm has 32 offices with over 2,100 lawyers generating $2.2 billion in global revenue. It has a unique ‘one-firm’ culture with no fixed headquarters. Associate lawyers have representation on all the firm’s administrative committees except the Executive Committee and Finance committee, and take an active role in recruitment and training activities.
