Helping to Bring New Technologies to the Marketplace

Solutions to global energy-generation and environmental protection problems require the application of new technologies to harness renewable energy sources, create new materials, dramatically reduce the use of natural resources, and cut or eliminate emissions and wastes. Latham understands that innovation is key to solving the world’s critical energy, natural resource, and pollution problems, and is proud to partner with Cleantech San Diego as it supports local innovation. Latham represents companies, and their investors and investment banking firms, from the earliest stages of formation, financing, and going public to navigating the diverse legal and regulatory issues during ongoing operations. They also counsel clients on financings, mergers, and acquisitions, and have deep expertise in project development, including citing and permitting, tax structuring, and finance. In addition, Latham has a long history of working on issues pertaining to energy and environmental regulation, government contracts, and technology transactions.

Local Commitment

With more than 30 offices worldwide, Latham is committed to building sustainable projects around the world, and they have harnessed their energy locally by building and maintaining a LEED gold certified building.
