The New York Post revealed on Tuesday that the husband of Republican Representative Liz Cheney is a partner in the law firm that defends Hunter Biden. Philip Perry is part of Latham & Watkins since 2007 and, according to the firm’s official website, his work is based on financial matters.

It was also known that Chris Clark, another Latham partner, has been legally representing Hunter Biden since December 2020. However, the involvement of Cheney’s husband in the firm was not previously known. “Latham is a Democratic powerhouse, with company attorneys and other employees donating more than half a million dollars to President Biden’s 2020 campaign, Federal Election Commission records show. Clark himself ponied up $3,800,” the outlet detailed.

Asked by The Post, Cheney’s team assured that the firm has more than 3,000 partners and maintained that he has no relationship with Hunter Biden. “Latham & Watkins has 3000 lawyers and thousands of clients. Mr. Perry has no role at all in any matter involving Hunter Biden,” a spokesman for Liz Cheney told The Post.

It further explains that Clark has been involved in other cases such as the PDVSA bond case, Venezuela’s state-owned oil company.
