Thanks to the small intakes, trainees are given early responsibility to work on complex multi-jurisdictional matters.
The principal focus of the training is on transactional law with a specialism in private equity. Trainees complete four, six month seats and obtain training in areas such as corporate M&A, debt finance, investment funds, restructuring, real estate finance, tax, financial services regulatory, international arbitration & litigation, and antitrust & competition. In addition there are opportunities to undertake an overseas secondment to enable trainees to experience the international resources and capabilities of Kirkland & Ellis.
On the job training is actively supported by an extensive education programme, carefully tailored to meet the needs of our trainees.
