Success In Multiple Practice Areas

We have the largest dedicated private equity practice in the market and that includes the largest sponsor-side debt finance group in Europe. Kirkland is the only firm in the European market to act for such a diverse mix of top European private equity and financial investor clients on multiple deals across multiple sectors and geographies, supported by a deep bench of lawyers whose sole focus is advising sponsors and their portfolio companies. All trainees complete seats in our corporate/M&A and debt finance departments as well as two other complementary practice areas.


Kirkland advises across the full spectrum of corporate matters including acquisitions, reorganisations, restructurings, public to privates, minority investments, carve outs and sales. In the last three years, Kirkland has executed over 300 deals across more than 29 European countries.


Kirkland is uniquely positioned to advise clients on private equity, real estate and hedge funds, and we regularly represent leading institutional investors regarding their investments in private funds.


For major financial transactions across Europe, borrowers, lenders and insurers turn to us for reliable and specialist advice. Our London office concentrates, particularly on leveraged finance, acquisition finance and debt restructuring and real estate finance.


We enjoy an ever-growing reputation for multi-jurisdictional restructurings and insolvency proceedings, especially planning and strategies for cross-border deals. Our client list features shareholders, directors, creditors, debtors, turnaround advisors and insolvency agents.


Our strong in-house tax team has considerable experience in acquisitions, restructuring, fund formation and other complex fund related issues, management tax issues, share incentive arrangements and tax aspects of debt finance and capital market transactions.


We represent issuers, sponsors and underwriters in a wide variety of international securities transactions, with a particular focus on offerings of high-yield and other complex debt securities.
