Today we put up our poster on the Kirkland & Ellis law firm. This firm has been a major donor to the Law School, posing a possible issue of corruption or conflict of interest, as we’ve discussed on our “About” page. Here’s a text copy:
KIRKLAND & ELLIS LLP
Kirkland & Ellis defended BP against hundreds of oil workers after the largest environmental disaster in US history killed 11 of their colleagues, destroyed an entire ecosystem, and ruined the regional economy. Is that what it takes to become the US News “2011 Litigation Law Firm of the Year?”
See In re Oil Spill by the Oil Rig Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico, on April 20, 2010, 808 F. Supp. 2d 943 (E.D. La. 2011)
Can we talk about who firms actually defend?
Firmly refuse. An Unbound Campaign.
