Latham & Watkins Cuts 190 Lawyers

In a vivid illustration of how the global recession is battering the legal profession, Latham & Watkins, one of the largest law firms in the nation, announced yesterday that it will let go 190 lawyers and 250 paralegal and support staff.

Latham & Watkins, which represents clients such as District-based Carlyle Group, Goldman Sachs, Harrah’s Entertainment and UBS, has nearly 270 lawyers in Washington and more than 2,000 worldwide.
