Most litigators love to relive their trials. What sets Kirkland & Ellis apart -- and the reason the firm topped The American Lawyer's latest Litigation Department of the Year contest -- is the number of high-stakes, high-impact trials its lawyers have won since the start of 2006. Kirkland tried 30 cases to verdict, winning more significant trials than any other firm in the competition. But the successes weren't limited to trials; the firm achieved key results for clients at every stage of litigation.
