Whatever the size of a deal or stage of a company’s development, we handle the most challenging compensation, employee benefits, and employment issues facing businesses today. 

We work with clients to address virtually every potential issue — from tailoring compensation arrangements in the context of multi-billion dollar mergers and acquisitions and capital markets transactions, to complex multi-jurisdictional employment and employee benefits matters, to optimizing plan design to account for tax and securities law considerations. Our clients include Silicon Valley unicorns, New York financial institutions, London private equity firms, Hong Kong emerging growth companies and every type of company in between. As we work with our clients, we pride ourselves on partnering together and working as an integrated part of our client’s team. 

Given the scope of Latham’s practices, we have an unparalleled view of the compensation, benefits, and employment issues that arise in any industry around the world. Our global reach and cross-office collaboration give us a unique ability to access the insights of colleagues throughout the world on issues such as tax, securities, labor and employment, and corporate governance. Much of our work requires a sophisticated understanding of not only the legal landscape, but also market practice and conditions. We draw on our unmatched global expertise and client experience to efficiently develop commercial and practical workforce solutions with our clients.
