Cravath, Swaine & Moore’s office at 825 Eighth AVe.in New York.

Four months after making headlines with its hire of Cravath, Swaine & Moore corporate partner Eric Schiele, Kirkland & Ellis has returned to the firm for two more hires.

Sandra Goldstein, long considered one of Cravath’s most powerful partners and a former head of litigation at the firm, is moving to Kirkland’s New York office with litigation associate Stefan Atkinson, said a source briefed on the matter. Atkinson, like Goldstein, will be an equity partner in Kirkland’s litigation group.

A Friday evening email to Goldstein at Cravath returned a message that she had resigned from the partnership as of April 13. All inquiries on client matters are being directed to Daniel Slifkin, the current head of Cravath’s litigation group. A request for comment sent to Goldstein at Kirkland and her personal email address were not immediately returned by the time of this story.
