Appellate partners Paul Clement and Erin Murphy are leaving Kirkland & Ellis, the firm said Thursday, hours after they won a high-profile U.S. Supreme Court case for the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. Kirkland added that it will no longer represent clients in Second Amendment matters.
Clement and Murphy, in a separate announcement, said they are opening their own appellate boutique, Clement & Murphy. The statements highlighted the tensions of Clement and Murphy continuing to represent gun clients while staying at Kirkland.
