Latham continues City regulatory growth with Linklaters hire
Latham & Watkins has hired London-based financial regulation partner Carl Fernandes from Linklaters.
Fernandes joined Linklaters in 2001 and made partner at the firm in 2007. He spent five years in Hong Kong, where he formerly served as the firm’s Asia head. He has experience advising banks and asset managers in both Europe and Asia regarding regulatory matters.
Fernandes’ hire is the latest in a series of regulatory hires in London by the US firm. The firm’s co-chair of financial institutions Rob Moulton was brought in from Ashurst in mid-2016, and he’s been working with his team to establish Latham as the dominant regulation practice in the City.
