Kirkland & Ellis Announces Executive Changes

Kirkland & Ellis has hired Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer partner Michael Steele, a month after high-yield partner Ward McKimm made the opposite move. Steele joined the magic circle firm in 2008 as a senior associate and was made a partner four years later (28 March 2012). He is Freshfields' relationship partner for the Blackstone Group and Goldman Sachs, having spent 12 months in the latter's leveraged finance team in 2010. The hire follows several comings and goings from Kirkland, with its partner Ward McKimm making the opposite move to Freshfields last month (4 June 2015).
