Latham & Watkins is a fully-integrated, global law firm that takes pride in its culture of teamwork, collegiality and a strong commitment to quality and professionalism that have helped the firm succeed for more than 75 years. We do not operate regions or offices as separate profit centers, and no single office serves as a headquarters for the firm, enabling firm leadership to be spread across the globe and the firm to maintain a team-oriented focus.
Attorneys collaborate by sharing information and resources, and build cross-office teams that bring the right talent and expertise to address clients’ needs, regardless of geography. Clients rely on our vast team of approximately 2,100 lawyers located in the world’s major business and financial centers for their wide range of experience across practices, industries and global regions. Each of the firms’ offices strategically pairs local market knowledge with the firm’s global resources. Advising clients across a wide spectrum of transactional, litigation, corporate and regulatory areas, our internationally recognized practices provide clients with innovative solutions to complex business and legal matters.
Our attorneys, paralegals and staff throughout the world comprise a rich mixture of men and women of different races, ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, cultures and primary languages. We are strengthened enormously by this diversity, and our commitment to equal opportunity enables Latham & Watkins to draw from a remarkable wealth of talent to recruit and retain the best attorneys and create one of the world's leading law firms.
We are delighted to sponsor a number of students to participate in Law Preview's law school preparation course which is designed to help guide entering 1L law students on the road to success. The Latham & Watkins Law Preview Scholars Program is one of many firm initiatives aimed at increasing diversity in the legal profession
