Kirkland & Ellis LLP
Damon Fisher serves as the chair of Kirkland’s Los Angeles Office Operations Committee where he leads more than 300 attorneys and business professionals. During the past year, he has served as a resilient leader helping the office to pivot, thrive and retain its character in the midst of COVID-19. In February 2020, just one month before the citywide shut down mandate, Kirkland opened two new offices in Los Angeles. The firm, which had been a staple downtown for 25 years, opened a second location in Century City. In addition to helping to lead the office’s virtual transformation, Fisher continued to advise private equity firms navigating the economic fallout from the pandemic. His practice focuses on mergers and acquisitions, leveraged buyouts and equity financings for private equity sponsors and their portfolio companies in a wide variety of industries.
