Willkie hires high profile partner form Kirkland

December 10, 2013 High profile private equity lawyer Kirk Radke is set to end a nearly 30-year stint with Kirkland & Ellis in favour of rival firm Willkie Farr & Gallagher.

The timing of the move ha piqued some interest, since Radke would have been in line for a hefty bonus in early 2014.

Commenting on the move, Radke praised his new firm’s “deep experience, market credibility and integrated approach to private equity deal making, regulation and fund formation”.
