No Layover: The Ins & Outs of International Careers in Law - An Interview with Yi-Chin Ho

I recently had the distinct pleasure of speaking with Yi-Chin Ho regarding her work at Latham & Watkins LLP.

Her practice primarily focuses on representing Chinese or Taiwanese clients with business in the United States. Despite the challenges of bridging two very different cultures, she has leveraged her language and legal skills to build a thriving international practice. Even before starting law school, Yi-Chin knew that she wanted to use her law degree and language skills to bridge the gap of legal…

No Layover: The Ins & Outs of International Careers in Law - An Interview with Joanna Rosen

I recently had the distinct pleasure of speaking with Joanna Rosen regarding her work at Latham & Watkins LLP.

Joanna’s work with international clientele puts a fascinating spin on civil antitrust litigation, and creates very specific challenges for her. Not only is the law in this area stacked against the defendant, but…
