GCR 100 - 17th Edition

Latham & Watkins

10 January 2017

The geographic distribution of Latham & Watkins’ global heads – the nine hours’ time difference between Sven Völcker in Brussels and Christopher S Yates in San Francisco, with Federal Trade Commission alumna Amanda Reeves between them in Washington, DC – shows the firm’s reach. While Latham lost partners Yi Chin Ho to Kirkland & Ellis and Omar Shah to Morgan Lewis & Bockius, it hired Michael Lacovara and Michael Esser from Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, and Jonathan Parker from the UK Competition and Markets Authority.
