Kirkland Named to “The 2022 Global Outsourcing 100”

Kirkland & Ellis is pleased to announce that the Firm has been named to The 2022 Global Outsourcing 100® list of the world’s best outsourcing service providers and advisors by the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals® (IAOP®). The IAOP has named Kirkland to the list each year since the list’s inception in 2007, and this year gave the Firm top scores for Customer References, Awards & Certifications, Programs for Innovation and Programs for Corporate Social Responsibility.

“The last two years have emerged as the most challenging in recent history, with the entire world struggling to overcome the health and economic challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Every organization in every industry has felt the impact,” said IAOP’s CEO, Debi Hamill. “That’s why we are especially proud of the providers and advisors named in The 2022 Global Outsourcing 100, who have demonstrated top quality and performance excellence during unprecedented times.”

The Global Outsourcing 100 is a special advertising feature produced by the IAOP and was announced on February 16. The list is based on applications received; 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.

“We are honored by our continued recognition as leaders in the outsourcing industry by the IAOP,” said Neil Hirshman, partner in Kirkland’s Sourcing & Information Technology Practice Group.

Kirkland’s Sourcing & Information Technology Practice Group is an integrated team of lawyers across a number of Kirkland offices and practice areas.

“Kirkland’s inclusion on this prestigious list for the past sixteen consecutive years demonstrates the successful and innovative solutions our outsourcing practice provides to clients across the world,” said Gregg Kirchhoefer, partner in Kirkland’s Sourcing & Information Technology Practice Group.

Kirkland’s outsourcing lawyers take an active role with the IAOP. Mr. Hirshman is Chair of IAOP’s Strategic Advisory Board, and he and Mr. Kirchhoefer are both members of the IAOP Leadership Hall of Fame.
