Aaron Lorber - Kirkland & Ellis LLP

Within: Outsourcing

Kirkland & Ellis LLP in Chicago was one of the first firms to move into the outsourcing space in the 1980s and it is known for the ‘deep bench of experienced lawyers’ in its technology and IP transactions group, who can ‘get deals done quickly and efficiently’. Outsourcing is a key focus for the group and co-chairs Gregg Kirchhoefer and Neil Hirshman are recognised as experts in the field. Kirchhoefer and rising star Aaron Lorber acted for healthcare billing and revenue cycle management services provider Accretive Health in the renegotiation of its master services agreement with its largest client, which involved $6bn in revenue and the rebadging of 8,000 employees as part of a ten-year deal. Work for buy-side clients included assisting Patterson Medical Holdings with an information technology outsourcing (ITO) arrangement with NTT Data. Matthew Lovell and Daniel Lewis are also recommended.
