Norton Rose Fulbright names Kirtland new Washington, DC Partner-in-Charge

January 20, 2017


Norton Rose Fulbright has appointed Matthew Kirtland as the Partner-in-Charge of its Washington, DC office. The global law firm opened its Washington office 90 years ago, and the office has traditionally focused on governmental, regulatory, litigation and corporate matters for its domestic and international clients.

Kirtland, who joined the firm 20 years ago, said:

"I am thrilled by the opportunity to lead this talented group of lawyers and business professionals. While we have deep roots in the Washington legal market, we are poised for even greater future success as a result of our global platform."

Kirtland focuses his practice on dispute resolution with an emphasis on international arbitration, complex commercial litigation and white collar matters. He leads the international arbitration practice and transnational litigation practice in the Washington, DC office, and has represented corporate and individual clients from a diverse range of business sectors. His experience includes handling proceedings in multiple international arbitral institutions as well as in federal and state court both at the trial and appellate level. He received his law degree from Duke University School of Law and completed his undergraduate studies at Macalester College.

Daryl Lansdale, Norton Rose Fulbright's US Managing Partner, said:

"Matthew's dynamic and effective leadership will help our 80-lawyer Washington, DC office continue to provide superior client service. His international legal experience and global perspective will give further emphasis to serving the cross-border needs of our clients."
