Natalie Pita is an associate at Latham & Watkins LLP and a member of the firm’s Antitrust & Competition Practice. There she helps clients with their most complex antitrust law matters, from defending companies facing conduct investigations brought by regulators, merger challenges, class actions, or business-to-business litigation to aiding companies in merger filings.
Natalie graduated from the University of South Carolina with her B.S.B.A. in international business and economics and her B.A. in Spanish before going to law school at Duke University, where she graduated with her juris doctorate and her master of laws in international law. Prior to moving to New York, she clerked for Judge Terrence W. Boyle in the Eastern District of North Carolina. Prior to and during law school, Natalie worked as a freelance journalist for The New York Times.
Natalie has had a passion for dancing and writing for as long as she can remember. Throughout her childhood, she took as many dance classes as she could, and she was frequently writing short stories in her free time. Her love of writing eventually led her to her first journalism class in high school. The arts have taught her so many important life skills and brought her so much joy since a young age, and she is excited to be a part of the Community-Word Project’s efforts to help the youth of New York City grow through arts education and exploration.
