Latham associates help run Latham.

Make decisions with us.

We are regularly described as one of the best-run firms in the industry, and associates are key to our success.

Latham’s consensus-based management style depends on diverse viewpoints from around the firm. Our approach ensures you will have opportunities to share ideas and to help us make the best decisions for the firm.

Manage, Together

We understand good ideas come from all levels and all parts of the firm. Help us manage the firm together by participating in key committees:

  • Associates Committee
  • Diversity Leadership Committee
  • Ethics Committee
  • Pro Bono Committee
  • Recruiting Committee
  • Technology Committee
  • Training & Career Enhancement (TACE) Committee
The Associates Committee is just an extraordinary institution. Where else are partnership decisions made in a big meeting by a committee composed of 50% associates? It’s nuts, but makes for a very straightforward and meritocratic culture.

Participate in Collaborative Decision-Making

At Latham, you will work in a remarkably transparent and inclusive environment, and will be encouraged to share your opinions in our decision-making processes. You will notice that Latham manages associate reviews and evaluations, work assignments, and even determines associates’ bonuses, in an exceptional way.

Our Associates Committee — with equal numbers of associates and partners — draws heavily on peer input to make these crucial decisions. Our committee structure fosters collaboration over competition. Serving on the Associates Committee means making partnership recommendations and ensuring the partnership maintains its focus on teamwork, collegiality and quality.
