The Windy City's Litigation Rainmakers

The National Law Journal

This week, The National Law Journal trains its sights on litigation shops in Chicago—the city that brought us the skyscraper, Muddy Waters, Playboy and Ebony, and McDonald’s. Oh, and a heck of a lot of legal talent. We asked litigation practices there to tell us about themselves—their headcounts and revenues, wins and losses. Our staff scrutinized their reports to arrive at the list of law firms you’ll find in these pages. Kirkland & Ellis wins the overall prize. We were impressed by the sweep of the 300-attorney shop’s ambitions, the breadth of its expertise and its record for success—on average, Kirkland won a victory in civil litigation on every business day last year.
