Managed by Larry Latourette, a former Managing Partner of the D.C. Office of Preston Gates, our Partner Practice consists of a team of dedicated partner recruiters who understand the nuances of the partner recruiting process. After graduation, Larry spent almost two decades practicing law at national firms and as outside General Counsel for a publicly traded company. Today, Larry manages our Partner Practice, and oftentimes serves as the lead recruiter himself. We offer partners the resources necessary to make informed career decisions. For starters, those who are just curious about the job market may peruse our partner jobs database on their own time without responding to misinformed cold calls, and by personalizing their job alert settings to observe market trends, they can stay up-to-date with the latest lateral opportunities as they become available. Second, and most important, for those who are actively on the market, our partner recruiting team specializes in identifying select partner opportunities tailored to each partner candidate's specialty, experience, and culture preferences. We place partner candidates in wide variety of opportunities at both boutique and major AmLaw 100 firms.

With more than 1,000 attorneys in offices in the U.S., Asia, and Europe, this law firm has built a reputation as a leader in litigation, labor and employment, energy law, real estate, tax, and corporate work. While Lateral Link Members say that they work with "talented, approachable, [and] extremely smart colleagues," they admit the firm is "a 'door shut' kind of place," which means that while people are not "bullied into socializing with each other," it can sometimes feel not particularly "social."
