Household name corporations and financial institutions turn to the trial-ready lawyers at Latham & Watkins LLP, who are well versed in cases with potential liabilities exceeding the $1bn mark. Facebook retained San Francisco-based Elizabeth Deeley and Andrew Clubok and counsel Susan Engel in Washington DC to represent the company in several matters, including in five consolidated putative nationwide class action lawsuits filed in the Northern District of California involving claims of unfair competition. In a major victory in federal court, a trial team led by Thomas Nolan in Los Angeles acted for CashCall and its CEO in an enforcement action by the Consumer Financial Protection Board (CFPB) concerning CashCall's servicing of certain unsecured installment loans; the court rejected CFPB's claims, and the agency has appealed the ruling to the Ninth Circuit. James Brandt and Miles Ruthberg in New York receive praise. Other key figures in the team include Sean Berkowitz in Chicago, New York-based Joseph Serino and Laura Washington in Century City.
