More than three decades of legal practice and law firm leadership with Latham & Watkins form the foundation of Jack’s consulting practice. At Zeughauser Group, he counsels law firm leaders on strategic planning and growth initiatives, including mergers and acquisitions as well as management and leadership best practices.
In addition to serving as Latham’s managing partner and chairing the firm’s executive committee for six years, Jack practiced tax and business law and devoted significant effort to community service. Under his leadership, Latham diversified its practice, expanded its U.S. and international footprint, established a robust marketing and communications function, and grew its pro bono and community service programs.
Jack’s distinguished career has been characterized by a strong record of leadership in the legal profession and in his adopted state of California. He was appointed by Mayor Richard J. Riordan and reappointed by Mayor James Hahn to the Los Angeles Business Tax Advisory Commission, eventually serving as the Commission’s co-chair. He also works with the City of Los Angeles on special tax projects 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 substantial component of his professional commitment.
