Latham & Watkins LLP’s ‘excellent’ team handles high-profile litigation, often with an international element, and has notable strength in the technology and entertainment sectors. San Diego-based co-head Jennifer Barry represented NUDE Skincare in various international disputes, including an infringement suit brought against Happiness Group arising from its use of the ‘Nudu’ mark. Greg Garre in Washington DC and Andrew Gass in San Francisco led advice to Pandora Media and iHeartMedia in various litigation brought by a number of record labels alleging piracy. The team, which is also led by Matthew Moore in Washington DC and David Callahan in Chicago, was strengthened by the arrival of Kevin Wheeler in Washington DC from Fish & Richardson P.C.. Clients also recommend Perry Viscounty in Orange County, which is also where recently promoted counsel David Troutman is based.
