Best Wishes to Tim Muris on His Move to Kirkland & Eillis

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Tim Muris, one of the leading antitrust professors and practitioners in the world, is moving a chunk of his antitrust team from O'Melvany to Kirkland & Ellis. I have not yet seen a press release on the Kirkland website (note to Kirkland, this is very big news so send something out) but because the Washington Post is reporting the story, I feel that I can as well. Normally I do not note practitioner moves. However as Muris is also an academic at George Mason, I feel that it is ok to bend the rules. Tim also will be writing a paper for the 100 Years of Standard Oil conference that will appear in the Southern California Law Review in which I am co-organizing with Barak Orbach and Ed Swaine. More on the conference in subsequent posts.

March 28 Update

At 6:03pm I received an email press release highlighting the moves of Timothy Muris, Christine Wilson, Bilal Sayyed and Ian Conner to K&E. The news is now official. This is a big pick-up for K&E.
