By on March 21, 2018 in Law Firm Management

Bloomberg Law is reporting that Bill Voge, the managing partner and chair of Latham & Watkins, has stepped down and resigned from the firm after admitting to inappropriate personal conduct of a “sexual nature,” the firm announced on Tuesday.

The firm said Voge made a series of voluntary disclosures to the firm’s executive committee and then resigned. The conduct he described “involved the exchange of communications of a sexual nature with a woman whom he has never met in person and who had no connection to the Firm.”

“Latham was ranked as the top grossing law firm in the world in 2017, with $2.8 billion in revenue, more than 2,200 lawyers and offices flung all over the world,” writes reporter Casey Sullivan.
