Kirkland was recognized as a leader in litigation in the areas of class actions and torts, intellectual property and securities and finance law in BTI Consulting’s 2014 Litigation Outlook report, which compiles commentary from more than 300 in-house counsel.
For the third time, Kirkland was selected as one of the “Fearsome Foursome” — the four firms most likely to strike fear in opposing counsel because of their tenacity, their ability to assemble winning legal teams and their skill at anticipating opponents’ strategy.
Corporate counsel also identified Kirkland as one of four “powerhouse” firms for class action and tort litigation, one of three top firms for intellectual property litigation and one of five powerhouse firms in complex commercial litigation. Finally, respondents named Kirkland as a “standout” for its securities and finance litigation practice.
The BTI Litigation Outlook report examines changes, trends and opportunities to determine the best hiring opportunities, growth prospects and law firms in litigation.
