Two Latham partners have been recognized in the annual Leaders in Law report by the Los Angeles Business Journal, which honors “a select group of premier business law practitioners.” Jim Arnone, Global Chair of the firm’s Environment, Land & Resources Department, was named the winner of the Environmental Firm Attorney of the Year award, and Jason Silvera, Global Vice Chair of the Corporate Department, was a finalist in the Mergers & Acquisitions category.

In his published profile, Arnone was recognized for advising clients in matters involving state and federal environmental laws; infrastructure, energy, and real estate development projects; and litigation over the legal obligations of local, state, and federal government bodies – including extensive courtroom experience, both in trial and appellate courts.

Silvera was cited in his profile for a market-leading M&A and private equity practice in which he advises on transactions across a broad range of industry sectors.
