Latitude Continues Nationwide Growth by Opening St. Louis Office, Carol Davidson to Lead
Company Also Opens Offices in Philadelphia & San Francisco; Expansion Takes Company from Four to 10 Offices in Less than a Year
ST. LOUIS (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 St. Louis as well as Philadelphia 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,” 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 Carol Davidson as partner in St. Louis. Davidson comes to Latitude after serving as assistant general counsel – employment for SSM Health, a not-for-profit health system with 40,000 employees that serves the comprehensive health needs of communities across four Midwest states. She previously practiced at Am Law 100 firm Bryan Cave LLP.
“Having worked as senior in-house counsel as well as in Big Law, I see the need for peer-level attorneys who can jump right in to help an existing team or to handle the work of someone who left unexpectedly,” Davidson said. “These types of roles are very appealing to attorneys and paralegals who have excelled in competitive Big Law and in-house environments and want to be able to choose the assignments they prefer.”
“Carol has the deep legal experience and market knowledge we look for when searching for partners to lead our new offices,” Booher said. “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.
