"Otis was a key member of a small team at Kirkland & Ellis that handled the majority of our legal work. He was the point person at the associate level and worked tirelessly and without complaint, often juggling up to five or six live transactions involving multiple deal teams. He was professional, reliable, detail oriented and a good communicator. Specifically, he did a great job of interacting with business owners and opposing counsel, maintaining patience and driving things to closure."
