United States: Dispute resolution

Corporate investigations and white-collar criminal defense

Within: Corporate investigations and white-collar criminal defense

Latham & Watkins LLP has an impressive record in domestic and multi-jurisdictional investigations and white-collar criminal defense. The group is jointly chaired by Steven Bauer in San Francisco, Kathryn Ruemmler in Washington DC and New York's Benjamin Naftalis. Alongside Alice Fisher and Anne Robinson (both in Washington DC), Bauer represented Dow Chemical in a multibillion-dollar FCA suit, successfully obtaining a motion to dismiss from the District Court for the District of Columbia. In another highlight, Ruemmler is representing Time Warner Cable and Charter Communications in a New York Attorney General investigation into its alleged misrepresentation of broadband performance to consumers. In terms of individual representations, New York's Chris Clark was retained by Elon Musk, following fraud charges filed by the SEC in relation to the client's misleading tweet about taking Tesla private; the matter culminated in a quick settlement, which involved improvements to corporate governance and the payment of a monetary penalty. White-collar defense and securities litigator Eric Swibel and former federal prosecutor and white-collar specialist Terra Reynolds were appointed joint heads of litigation for the Chicago office in early 2019. Also of note, Elizabeth Prewitt, who focuses on international cartel matters, investigations and litigation, joined the team from Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP.
