Chambers' comments:  

London Ranking: Tier 3

Sources note that Kirkland has been doing some excellent work of late. The firm was instructed in 2007 as sole legal counsel to Sea Containers in connection with its Chapter 11 filings and global restructuring. Whilst the US business is debtor-oriented, the London practice does a mixture of work, including complex multi-jurisdictional creditor and debtor-led restructurings such as United Airlines, Nybron Flooring and Eurotunnel. Eight "bright and attentive" restructuring lawyers in London are praised for their ability to act with speed and efficiency, and to "explain legal details in layman's terms." Heading the restructuring group, Lyndon Norley is "commercial, successful and very experienced."
