The Firm’s superb reputation has been built by the scores of lawyers that have practiced here. Associates at Kirkland have the great benefit of standing on the shoulders of giants. I am proud to work for our clients, who are all industry leaders in their respective fields, and who entrust us with their most sensitive, important, and high-stakes opportunities.
Most matters settle before they ever reach a jury, but almost every matter I have worked on has resulted in a jury trial, and I have been a trial team member each time. There are several attorneys at Kirkland whom I have to thank for that, but the autonomy of the open assignment system has also played a significant role in allowing me to choose the kind of work that I enjoy most.
Being an indispensable and appreciated member of a high-performing team is one of the greatest joys of my work. I feel that sensation the most in trial environments, where the success of the team depends on each individual’s strengths. I have been lucky to be a member of six trial teams so far in my time at Kirkland.
I genuinely love the work and the people I work with. I have had professional experiences that go so far above and beyond what I thought would be available to me at a large law firm, and I know that I am growing with each of those experiences.
