Alumni Events



I have been away from Kirkland for over 20 years, and the primary reason why I keep in touch is the quality of the people you see at Kirkland & Ellis—high quality, high powered, intellectual, good people. - Gregg Garmisa, Alumnus, Principal and General Counsel, Studio Gang Architects


Kirkland’s alumni events provide opportunities for our colleagues for life to reconnect and build their legal networks, while enjoying chef-crafted food and entertainment at some of the best venues in the world, including renowned museums, exclusive restaurants and sports arenas.
