Former Am Law 200 Attorney to Work With Company’s National Pool of Flexible Legal Talent

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mar. 3, 2022) – Katharine Fischman has joined Latitude as director of legal recruiting and placement in the company’s Nashville office. In this role, she will work with experienced attorneys and paralegals in Nashville and throughout the country by matching them with corporate legal departments and law firms in substantive contract engagements and traditional permanent positions.

Fischman comes to Latitude from the Nashville office of Am Law 200 firm Frost Brown Todd LLC, where she practiced business and commercial litigation. In that position, she worked with businesses of all sizes to solve contract disputes, insurance coverage issues, real property concerns, environmental challenges, and organizational and governance issues.

She also served on the firm’s Women’s Initiative and Professional Development Committees and was active in its recruiting efforts.

“Having worked in Big Law and in-house on a secondment, Katharine understands the needs of our clients and the varied priorities or stress points of the attorneys we work with, so she is uniquely qualified to align both and recommend successful matches,” said Candice Reed, executive vice president and partner in charge of Latitude’s Tennessee operations. “She’s also a Nashville native and has spent her entire legal career in Nashville, so she understands this market and has seen it grow and evolve over the past several years.”

Fischman earned her J.D. from Indiana University Maurer School of Law and her B.A. from Tulane University. She is a member of the Nashville Bar Association, Lawyers’ Association for Women – Marion Griffin Chapter, and Harry Phillips Inn of Court.

“Latitude is known for working with talented attorneys and other legal professionals across all areas of the law and providing them with engaging yet flexible opportunities,” Fischman said. “I’m excited to be part of a company that not only provides these opportunities but has created a culture that fosters the well-being of our clients, candidates and the legal profession as a whole.”

Headquartered in Nashville, Latitude works with corporate legal departments and law firms nationwide with additional offices in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Indianapolis, Miami and Minneapolis.
