Latham Completes Makeover After Chair’s Scandalous Exit
Bloomberg Law is reporting that Brad Kotler, a banking and finance partner, has been elected vice chair of Latham & Watkins, completing its leadership makeover following the abrupt departure of chairman William Voge over questionable contacts with a woman outside the firm.
“Kotler’s selection comes about a month after the firm chose Richard Trobman, another firm veteran, to replace Voge, who resigned earlier this year,” writes Bloomberg’s Elizabeth Olson. “Kotler will serve as vice chair along with Ora Fisher, a partner in Silicon Valley.”
Voge stepped down and resigned from the firm after admitting to inappropriate personal conduct of a “sexual nature,” the firm announced in March.
