Latham & Watkins has bolstered its Washington DC-based litigation practice with the hire of the former counsel to the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States.
Douglas Greenburg, a specialist in corporate internal investigations and the defence of corporations in SEC and white-collar criminal investigations, joins Latham’s litigation practice as a partner from Winston & Strawn’s Washington DC office, where he has been a partner since 2001.
Earlier in his career, Greenburg served as a staff attorney at the US Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) division of enforcement, while in 2003-04 he served as a Counsel for the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (also known as the 9-11 Commission).
While at the 9-11 Commission, Greenburg investigated the financing of al Qaeda and the 9-11 terrorist attacks and the effectiveness of US efforts to identify and disrupt terrorist financing.
Greenburg’s appointment follows a string of lateral hires at Latham, including the hire of Chicago-based tax litigator Roger Jones from Mayer Brown Rowe & Maw earlier in the week.
