Latham & Watkins LLP

Latham & Watkins LLP combines an active domestic merger control practice, handling a large proportion of HSR filings, with a leading global platform, handling complex, multi-jurisdictional merger proceedings for blue-chip clients across a variety of industries. The firm has been active in the tech space, advising the likes of NVIDIA and AMD, while the highly-regarded Michael G. Egge  has continued his strong record, representing GRAIL in the FTC challenge to its $8bn acquisition by Illumina. The team’s cross-border expertise is considerable, with US-based practitioners working closely with the firm’s European and UK offices, regularly handling proceedings before the European Commission, CMA, and global antitrust regulators as well as FTC and DOJ challenges. Amanda Reeves  leads the team, and is known for her combination of global merger expertise and work on high-profile litigation relating to contested transactions, currently representing MGM throughout the global review of its acquisition by Amazon. San Francisco’s Kelly Fayne was promoted to partner in January 2021 in recognition of her growing profile in the market, playing an increasingly key role in major global deals including the MGM transaction and AMD’s purchase of Xilinx, while Farrell J. Malone is noted for his international expertise. Ian Conner joined the firm in March 2021, having previously served as Director of the Bureau of Competition at the FTC, further deepening the firm’s governmental expertise, while private equity-focused Katherine Rocco arrived from Kirkland & Ellis LLP in April 2022.
