Executive Compensation, Employment and Benefits Partner Joins Latham and Watkins in Boston

Issued by Latham & Watkins

June 22, 2022

Joshua Friedman advises emerging companies, multinational public companies, and private investment funds on equity compensation matters.

Latham & Watkins LLP¹ is pleased to announce that Joshua Friedman has joined the firm’s Boston office as a partner in the Executive Compensation, Employment & Benefits Practice and member of the Tax Department. Freidman advises emerging companies, multinational public companies, and private investment funds on a wide array of equity compensation issues, including executive compensation, employee benefits, tax structures, and ERISA aspects of corporate transactions. Friedman also serves as day-to-day compensation counsel to public and private companies, with a particular focus on emerging and life sciences companies.

“Josh is an excellent addition to the Boston office and we are thrilled to welcome him to the firm,” said Wesley Holmes, Office Managing Partner of Latham & Watkins in Boston. “His experience advising emerging and life sciences companies as well as private investment funds is highly synergistic with our client base in Boston, not to mention his work with multinational public companies, which complements Latham’s global platform.”

Friedman also counsels venture capital, private equity and real estate funds, and investment managers on various ERISA issues, including the investment of ERISA plan assets and the establishment and operation of venture capital operating companies and real estate operating companies.

“We are delighted to welcome Josh to our global team as we continue to expand the practice internationally, nationwide, and in Boston,” said Bradd Williamson, Global Chair of Latham’s Executive Compensation, Employment & Benefits Practice. “Demand for our team’s counsel has been significantly rising, in line with the overall growth of Latham’s transactional practices and the increased complexity of the executive compensation, employment and benefits space. Josh’s experience advising on complex transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, debt and equity financings, and restructurings, will enhance the strength of our team and benefit our clients.”

“Latham is an ideal home for me as I look to further grow my practice – offering an established, robust transactional platform, combined with a collegial and team-focused culture,” said Friedman. “I look forward to serving clients on a range of cutting-edge and business-critical transactions, as well as day-to-day matters.”

Friedman is the third partner to join Latham’s Executive Compensation, Employment & Benefits Practice this year, following the arrivals of Maj Vaseghi and Benjamin Rosemergy in the Bay Area and Chicago, respectively.

Friedman received his LLM from New York University School of Law; JD from Boston University School of Law; and BA from the University of Pennsylvania.
