Latham chief’s exit linked to Christian group helping men deal with temptation

Bill Voge's links to men's Christian group the New Canaan Society under scrutiny following resignation after "lapses in personal judgement"

The resignation of Latham & Watkins’ global chair and managing partner Bill Voge was linked to his membership of a Christian support group that aims to help men deal with the temptations they face in their professional lives, it has emerged.

Voge, who yesterday (20 March) quit Latham after admitting to “communications of a sexual nature” with a woman unconnected to the firm, is listed on the board of directors of US faith-based group the New Canaan Society, which describes itself as “a group of men who gather together to encourage each other in friendship and faith and to support each other to be better husbands, fathers – and better men”.
