As of October 2016, when the attorneys from Bancroft joined Kirkland & Ellis LLP, the firm litigated high-stakes cases and solved complex problems.  The Firm focused on Supreme Court and appellate litigation and provided strategic counseling ranging from corporate governance to white collar investigations.  Our clients included the nation’s largest companies, corporate boards and their members, trade associations, universities, individuals, and more than half of the States.   We believed in putting our clients’ interests first and solving their problems, whether the solution was in litigation, negotiated settlement, or elsewhere.

Our practice areas included Supreme Court and appellate litigation, complex litigation, risk management and compliance, and corporate governance and strategy.  We handled high-stakes matters in almost every substantive area of law–including antitrust, arbitration, bankruptcy, class actions, commercial, copyright, corporations, criminal, education, employment, energy, environmental, ERISA, FDA, health care, insurance, labor, national security, patent, preemption, RICO, securities, telecommunications, and all manner of constitutional issues.
