Communications

The Latham & Watkins' Global Communications Practice is broadly based in transactional, regulatory and litigation experience, enhanced by a deep knowledge of the communications sector. Our experience includes arranging financing for business ventures, structuring mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures, developing creative regulatory solutions, and obtaining redress in federal and state courts and agencies. Recently, Chambers & Partners named Latham the "USA Communications Law Firm of the Year," noting the firm's "deep expertise in not just the regulatory field but also in corporate, tax, bankruptcy and litigation." Latham is consistently ranked in the top tier of telecommunications, broadcast and satellite practices in Washington, D.C. by Chambers and Legal 500, which called this “amazing" group "one of the largest and most successful practices" in the United States. Legal 500 called the firm "incomparable when it comes to the business of getting deals done -- no one comes near them." Legal 500 also notes that, “Clients recognize ‘the great value of having lawyers like these who can manage the regulatory side of deals and yet still be savvy enough to understand the commercial impact'.”

Our lawyers have both industry and government experience, which gives us significant insight into how our clients can best meet their strategic goals. We represent clients across a broad cross-section of the globe and the industry, including clients who "repeatedly return to the group for their growth into new areas" (Legal  500 US  2008). Because our legal expertise spans American, European, Asian and Latin American sectors, we are equipped to assist our clients in jurisdictions around the world. The global group is called “one of the best for truly global coverage” in Chambers Global.
