There’s little doubt among members of the Washington, D.C., appellate bar that Independent Counsel Kenneth W. Starr has less “natural ability” to recruit clients today than he did in 1993, fresh from serving as the Bush administration’s solicitor general. So it wasn’t too surprising to read in the New Yorker that Chicago’s 636-lawyer Kirkland & Ellis, the firm Starr joined in 1993 and from which he took a leave of absence in 1998, offered him a job at the nadir of the partner salary range, $800,000, far less than the $2 million he would have earned in his former capacity. “It’s not the same model that landed him the job in 1993,” said a top D.C. appellate lawyer. “He’s much less of a natural draw now.”
