Musso Will Serve as Director of Legal Recruiting and Placement for South Florida Market
MIAMI (December 14, 2021) – Carolina Latour Musso has joined Latitude as director of legal recruiting and placement in the company’s Miami office. In this role, she will work with experienced attorneys, paralegals, legal operations professionals and compliance officers in South Florida and throughout the country by engaging them in substantive legal work with corporate legal departments and law firms.
Prior to joining Latitude, Musso was an attorney with Miami boutique firm Isicoff Ragatz, where she worked primarily in the commercial litigation and intellectual property practice groups advising clients on a wide range of litigation and transactional matters. She also previously worked as a litigation associate at Squire, Sanders & Dempsey (now known as the Am Law 50 firm Squire Patton Boggs), where she represented multinational corporations and governments in international arbitration and litigation matters.
“Carolina has the same sophisticated experience we look for in the attorneys and other legal professionals we place with clients, which makes her a great fit for this role,” said Andy Chagui, partner at Latitude Miami. “She’s been actively involved in the South Florida legal community for more than 15 years, so she understands the local culture and the high-end legal talent our clients seek.”
“I look forward to sharing the flexible yet engaging opportunities that Latitude provides to its attorneys, paralegals and other legal professionals in South Florida and nationwide,” Musso said. “As a former law firm attorney, I see the value in working with companies like Latitude that can assist clients in various capacities, including staffing secondments, backfilling positions during leaves of absence, and providing surge capacity, just to name a few.”
Musso earned her J.D. from the George Washington University Law School and a bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University.
Headquartered in Nashville, Latitude entered Miami in January 2020 under the leadership of Chagui, a former shareholder at Am Law 200 firm Carlton Fields.
