When I joined Latham in early 2015 as a lateral from a smaller firm where I had spent nearly 20 years, I was apprehensive. Of course I knew Latham is a world-class firm, and that I would be surrounded by talented and driven lawyers. But I was concerned that I would feel lost in a global, 2000+ lawyer firm. As it turns out, nothing could be further from the truth. Not only did my new partners and lawyer colleagues make me feel welcome and at home, but everyone at the firm has been incredibly helpful and supportive.
