Kirkland & Ellis LLP Key Developments

Kirkland & Ellis Announces Executive Appointments

Kirkland & Ellis has expanded its restructuring team in Hong Kong with the hire of ex-Hogan Lovells partner Kelley Naphtali, following the launch of the practice with two Hogan Lovells partners a year ago. Naphtali will join Kirkland from insolvency and litigation boutique firm Lipman Karas' Hong Kong office, where she was a partner. She moved to Hong Kong from Australia in 2002 and has practiced at White & Case and Hogan Lovells. She was made up in 2010 at Hogan Lovells before moving to Lipman Karas in 2011. She rejoins former colleague Neil McDonald, who joined Kirkland from Hogan Lovells in September 2014. McDonald was the head of Hogan Lovells' Asia restructuring practice and helped launch Kirkland's restructuring practice in Hong Kong. Kirkland also hired Hogan Lovells restructuring partner Damien Coles for the launch, just months after he joined the firm from O'Melveny & Myers. Naphtali's appointment is set to boost the firm's litigation capability for the restructuring group, whereas McDonald and Coles' practice has a transactional focus. Dual-qualified in Australia and Hong Kong, she is experienced in cross-border litigation and insolvencies and pursuing claims arising from corporate collapses.
