    Latham & Watkins LLP is dedicated to working with clients to help them achieve their business goals and overcome legal challenges anywhere in the world. From a global platform of offices in the world's major financial, business and regulatory centers, the firm's lawyers help clients succeed. We provide advice to clients in a full range of practice areas, including antitrust and competition; corporate governance; data privacy, security and cybercrime; environment, land and resources; healthcare and life sciences; intellectual property; litigation; mergers and acquisitions; private equity; real estate; restructuring; tax; and white collar defense and investigations.

    Latham & Watkins’ Brussels office is the hub for the firm's European competition practice, which consists of more than 50 lawyers in the major jurisdictions in Europe. The firm’s European competition team handles complex and cutting-edge matters before the European Commission, Member State authorities, and EU and n (...)

    Main EU files targeted

    The EU activities most relevant to the firm relate to the competition law issues regarding which we frequently represent clients: abuse of dominance; cartel defense; clearance of mergers; compliance and counseling; distribution issues; intellectual property-competition law interface; sector inquiries; and state aid. The firm also advises on other EU regulatory issues in the fields of data protection, environmental law, energy, life sciences, taxation, trade/customs law and transportation. We do not have a dedicated public policy or lobbying practice; most of our regular activities on behalf of clients in these areas do not fall within the scope of the Register.

    Complementary Information

    We do not have full-time personnel whose dedicated responsibilities involve covered activities. We have three individuals involved in monitoring EU law developments, which may from time to time include covered activities. This work comprises well less than 10% of each of their time. On a case-by-case basis, work by our partners, associates, and other staff involved in monitoring EU law developments, discrete matters for our clients, or firm events, may involve activities or outreach covered by the Register. In such situations, these individuals would spend a small fraction of their time (<10%) on covered activities, and are reflected in the aggregate .3 FTE.
