Kirkland & Ellis launches in Houston

April 24, 2014 After seeing a number of partner departures over the past few months, Kirkland & Ellis has launched in Houston with the hire of M&A partner Andrew Calder from rival firm Simpson Thacher & Bartlett.

Calder will lead the new office, bringing expertise in M&A, securities law and corporate governance, with a focus on the energy sector.

Calder is followed by associate Rhett Van Syoc, and he will be supported in Houston by several Kirkland lawyers who are relocating from Chicago to Houston: Benjamin Clinger, William Benitez, Andrew Dixon, and Kyle Watson.
