Katrina RoweKirkland & Ellis LLP

Kirkland & Ellis LLP is ‘well recognized as one of the leading law firms in this area’; a national offering comprising more than 520 specialized attorneys ‘consistently provides outstanding work and advice, even under very challenging or urgent circumstances’. Given the department’s historical role in ‘developing many of the legal principles and precedents that enabled the private funds sector to grow to its present size’, there is ‘rarely an issue that the practitioners have not seen and successfully navigated’. The group is instructed by a roster of more than 700 private equity sponsor clients, all of whom benefit from its ‘unequalled experience with fund formation, structuring, taxation and operations’. The New York office is a key base, fielding not only practice head John O’Neil but also a plethora of recommended senior attorneys, including Erica Berthou, Andrew Wright, Nicole Washington and Katrina Rowe. 2021 has also seen significant expansion at this location: Matthew Block from Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, Mark Boyagi from Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, and Brad Friedman from Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP are just some of the notable recent arrivals. In addition, a new acquisition has cemented the team’s presence in Boston, where Luzia Vaczy, formerly of Proskauer Rose LLP, is now based. Over in Chicago, Bruce Ettelson and Katie St. Peters remain the core contacts.
