The attorneys here have an incredible drive, and people truly enjoy their work. You can’t help but share in their enthusiasm when you see people so immersed in what they do.
At Kirkland, taking ownership of our work is emphasized. The open assignment system provides attorneys with a lot of flexibility on how we want to shape our careers. We figure out what assignments we want to work on, what we find intellectually stimulating, and we do it with the people we jibe well with. You have the option to choose the type of work and the type of clients, which has been a very rewarding experience and has helped me develop as a lawyer.
The Firm has a great reputation, and our lawyers are held to a high standard internally by colleagues and externally by clients, which provides a great source of motivation to continue improving. Working to meet those expectations and standards helps me grow.
