“When clients faced outsized problems, they turned to Kirkland & Ellis.” American Lawyer, January 2016, Litigation Department of the Year (Finalist)
Kirkland litigators expect — and are expected — to try cases. We believe that the best litigation results happen when the lawyers and client form a team that assumes it will try the case. Because of this trial-ready philosophy, we are able to offer clients a deep bench of lawyers who have been taking cases to verdict since the early stages of their careers. Whether in the courtroom, at the bargaining table, or by helping clients avoid risks without litigation, Kirkland has a long and proven track record of generating successful results for clients in their most high-stakes cases. In recognition of the Firm's achievements in litigation, Kirkland was chosen in 2008 as The American Lawyer's "Litigation Department of the Year." Kirkland was also chosen as a finalist for this award in 2010 and 2016.
