Kirkland & Ellis City funds partner Leith Moghli has left the firm to join Reed Smith.
Moghli had worked at Kirkland for 10 years, making partner in 2015. He left the firm in April and today (4 September) joined Reed Smith’s private equity and investment funds practice in London.
Reed Smith financial industry chair Edward Estrada said: “Leith’s credentials and experience with leading sponsors and investment houses bolsters our funds team, in particular on the fund formation side of our business.’’
The firm most recently boosted its London office with the hire of Dentons’ UKMEA media and entertainment practice head Ingrid Silver earlier this summer.
Meanwhile, in March, Reed Smith grew its Munich office with the addition of a team of three lawyers – including one partner – from Olswang’s Munich office, ahead of the firm’s merger with CMS and Nabarro in May.
Exits this year include, in July, Reed Smith City finance partner Jacqui Hatfield who resigned to join US rival Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe in London.
Kirkland has also hired several partners this year. Last month it took six partners from US rival Ropes & Gray, including a five-partner enforcement team spread across four of the firm’s offices. The group was joined in the same fortnight by City investment funds partner Anand Damodaran.
At the same time, the firm has also seen a number of other exits in 2017 including, in April, London restructuring partner Mark Knight. He left the firm to join Pillarstone – an investment platform set up by US private equity giant KKR – as its first general counsel.
Others include Kirkland banking partner Rob Bradshaw who joined Dechert’s London office in March, while in February the firm saw the departure of a seven-partner team in Munich to Sidley Austin.
