Crazy. I knew they were crushing it but it's only a few years since they opened Houston, and like 10 months since they opened Boston.

Does anyone have an idea of what year they would start hiring summer associates for the Dallas office? :)

Email their recruiting staff and get your name in there. Can't hurt.

Just an assumption but if they are opening the office now surely they'll be hiring some summers for next year.

K&E isn’t going to hire summers at OCI this year for an office they haven’t announced is opening.

Can you confirm this? There is a specific interview slot for Kirkland Dallas at my school's OCI...

Seems to me they won't be interviewing for Dallas in 2018 OCI season - likely, they can rely on taking returning 1L's from the firms they hire laterals from.

At my t14 they are interviewing for Houston, but not the Dallas office. If I interview for the Houston office would it be okay for me to mention that I would also be interested in the Dallas office since I am from Dallas?

I probably wouldn't mention it, but if they otherwise really liked you, I doubt that the expression of interest in Dallas would be a dealbreaker. And would you really be interested in Kirkland Dallas? It sounds like it will largely be the TK Dallas Corporate group under a different name.

Any ideas/guesses as to whether the dallas office will be looking to hire any 3Ls, or will they be focusing mostly on lateral associates/partners at this point?
