Kirkland's bankruptcy, class action, environmental, intellectual property, mergers & acquisitions, private equity and real estate practice groups were recognized among Law360's 2011 Practice Groups of the Year.
Law360 solicited submissions from more than 500 law firms for the series. The more than 550 submissions received were reviewed by a committee of Law360 editors. Winners were selected based on the significance of the litigation wins or deals worked on; the size and complexity of the litigation wins or deals worked on; and the number of significant, large or complex deals the firms worked on or lawsuits the firm won. Accomplishments from December 1, 2010, to December 1, 2011, were considered.
