Chambers & Partners named Kirkland & Ellis “Intellectual Property Firm of the Year” at the Chambers USA Awards 2016. The awards are based on research conducted for the 2016 edition of Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business and reflect notable achievements of the past year, focusing on outstanding work, strategic growth and excellent client service.
In acknowledgement of the award, Chambers wrote, “Kirkland has long been considered a market leader in the IP space, and has had yet another outstanding year. In keeping with the firm’s litigation strength, many standout pieces of work have been in contentious matters, most notably with respect to the technology industry. The team acts for clients of the caliber of Samsung, Cisco and Oracle, with one particularly grateful client affirming: ‘I am consistently wowed by the work product I get from them.’”
