Kirkland lands million-dollar payout after outsourcing dispute
A US judge has awarded Kirkland & Ellis and one other US firm $10m (£6m) in legal fees in a dispute over an outsourcing agreement, reports The Am Law Daily. The dispute stemmed from an outsourcing deal signed by tech company Metavante and Emigrant Savings Bank in 2004. Metavante had accused Emigrant of breaching the deal, before Emigrant filed counter-claims that eventually pushed the case into federal court.
