OOo can import doc files and export LaTeX. You should save the doc file
as ODT from OOo before exporting to LaTeX.

You can also use OOo's LaTeX export from the commandline:


LaTeX export can be easily configured by editing writer2latex.xml in
your home directory. See documentation for more details.
