Latitude Continues Nationwide Growth by Opening Philadelphia Office, Megan Grossman to Lead
Company Also Opens Offices in St. Louis & San Francisco; Expansion Takes Company from Four to 10 Offices in Less than a Year
PHILADELPHIA (April 7, 2022) – In its largest expansion to date, Latitude, a national legal services company that specializes in providing high-end flexible legal talent for corporate legal departments and law firms, has opened an office in Philadelphia as well as St. Louis and San Francisco. With the addition of these three locations, the company has more than doubled its number of offices in the past nine months and now has locations from Boston to San Francisco, Minneapolis to Miami and cities in between.
“We’re working with more and more legal departments and law firms of all sizes across the country because they recognize the benefits of using peer-level flexible legal talent to fill sophisticated legal roles when, for example, a law firm associate goes out on leave or in-house counsel workload surges,” said Latitude CEO Ross Booher. “Because of our deep roster of attorneys and paralegals with specific in-house and Big Law experience in the tech, healthcare, financial services and manufacturing industries among others, these markets are a natural fit for us.”
With the launch of these new markets, Latitude is expanding its leadership team to include Megan Grossman as partner in Philadelphia. Most recently, Grossman was a partner in the Philadelphia office of Am Law 100 firm Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith and vice-chair of the firm’s Life Sciences Practice Group.
“What appealed to me about joining Latitude is the opportunity to provide legal departments and law firms with attorneys and paralegals who have already excelled in Big Law and in-house,” Grossman said. “This isn’t only a win for our clients who are able to receive immediate relief from a peer-level colleague who can hit the ground running, it’s a win for our attorneys because they are doing work they love and can pick and choose their assignments.”
“Megan has the deep legal experience and market knowledge we look for when searching for partners to lead our new offices,” Booher added. “She has served in similar roles to the clients we work with and has worked alongside the same high-caliber attorneys we provide.”
Headquartered in Nashville, Tenn., Latitude expanded to Atlanta in 2019, Indianapolis and Miami in 2020, Austin and Boston in 2021, and Minneapolis in early 2022.
Latitude is a legal services company that specializes in employing and providing former in-house counsel and Big Law attorneys and paralegals to legal departments and leading law firms nationwide. The company attracts outstanding legal talent for contract and contract-to-hire roles – as well as for permanent positions – by offering sophisticated work, great clients and competitive pay and benefits along with a refreshing combination of flexibility and boundaries. Our clients range from Fortune 500 corporations to small companies and Global 50 law firms to boutiques.
