Kirkland & Ellis has added partner Jennifer Perkins to its corporate practice group.

Perkins advises private equity clients on corporate transactions.

She was previously global co-chair of Latham & Watkins' private equity practice.

Perkins is recognised as a 'Notable Practitioner' by IFLR1000 based on her work in connection with headline deals.

Her arrival comes shortly after an earlier addition to Kirkland's corporate group in January.
