More than three decades of legal practice and law firm leadership with Latham & Watkins forms the foundation of Jack Walker's consulting practice. In addition to serving as Latham's Managing Partner and chairing its Executive Committee from 1988 until 1994, Jack practiced tax and business law at Latham for over 30 years.
Under Jack's leadership, Latham diversified its practice, expanded its domestic and international footprints, established a robust marketing and communications function, and grew its pro bono and community service programs. While at Latham, Jack lent his time and energy to a wide range of civic and professional groups, and the Los Angeles Daily Journal named him one of California's 100 most influential lawyers for six consecutive years.
Jack's distinguished career has been characterized by a strong record of leadership in the legal profession and in his adopted state of California. Jack was appointed by Mayor Richard J. Riordan to the Los Angeles Business Tax Advisory Commission, which is reforming the Los Angeles business license tax. Jack was reappointed by Mayor James Hahn, and served as the Commission's co-chair. Jack also works with the City of Los Angeles on special tax projects from time to time on a volunteer basis.
Whether in leadership roles for the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce, the Board of Directors of Public Counsel, the largest public interest law firm in the United States, or the County Bar Association Task Force on State Court Jury Reform, Jack makes community involvement a significant component of his professional commitment.
