Kirkland & Ellis LLP has been named to the list of The 2017 World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors for the Global Outsourcing 100® by the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals® (IAOP®). The Firm has been named to the list each year since its inception.
IAOP announced the list for the The Global Outsourcing 100 Providers and the World’s Best Outsourcing Advisors on February 19 at the 2017 Outsourcing World Summit®.
The 2017 Global Outsourcing 100® and The World's Best Outsourcing Advisors recognize the world’s best outsourcing service providers and advisors. These lists are based on applications received, and judging is based on a rigorous scoring methodology that includes an independent review by an independent panel of IAOP customer members with extensive experience in selecting outsourcing service providers and advisors for their organizations. The 2017 panel is led by IAOP CEO Debi Hamill and Chairman Michael F. Corbett.
“Buyers understand there are hundreds of qualified service providers and advisors out there, but what they really need to understand now is what makes each one exceptional,” said IAOP CEO, Debi Hamill. “The Global Outsourcing 100 and World’s Best Advisors lists have done just that. We are proud to recognize Kirkland & Ellis for being among the highest rated advisors.”
“We are honored to once again be recognized as one of the world’s best outsourcing advisors” said Neil Hirshman, Kirkland partner.
Kirkland’s Outsourcing Practice Group is an integrated team of lawyers across a number of Kirkland offices and practice areas.
