Hurlock joins Kirklands as a partner from Davis Polk in New York on 3 April. Stuart Mills, head of Kirklands' London corporate practice, says Hurlock will be doing a mixture of M&A and securities work, specialising in private equity.
"He's a fabulous catch. He speaks a number of different languages and is very personable," says Mills.
Hurlock is a seven-year-qualified associate at Davis Polk. "We make partners after six years, which is earlier than the Wall Street firms, and it would be unfair to bring him in at a position that is lower than his class," says Mills.
His arrival will give Chicago-based Kirklands' London office five partners. Mills says the office will beef up its M&A practice further with the arrival of two partners from the US over the summer. Mills says the office has no plans to take on English lawyers.
