Kirkland & Ellis LLP’s international tax practice maintains a reputation as a go-to team for high-end transactions in the corporate and private equity fields. An integral part of what is a top-tier firm in the restructuring space, the team is well placed to handle the recent uptick in distressed M&A, insolvencies and workouts; in this regard, practice co-heads Todd Maynes and Dean Shulman (based in Chicago and New York, respectively) advised on a number of headline bankruptcies in the aviation, retail, travel, leisure and energy sectors. The group is also active in the burgeoning SPAC space, where Lee Morlock, Rachel Cantor and Mike Carew in Chicago, and Jared Rusman, Sara Zablotney and David Grenker in New York are names to note. New York-based Mike Beinus handles complex partnership transactions and REIT structuring. Multibillion-dollar, tax-driven investment fund formation is another strength for the team. Richard Husseini was a new arrival in the firm’s Houston office at the end of August in 2021.
