Alumni Stories: Meet Brice Lipman, MBA '16, JD '16


We recently visited Chicago Booth alumni in the energy capital of Houston, Texas. Our next story comes from Brice Lipman, ’16, an associate attorney at Kirkland & Ellis, a top law firm with locations around the world. 

We spoke with Brice about how his joint degree JD/MBA from the University of Chicago Law School and Chicago Booth was essential to his career path and professional success. Advising energy, oil, and gas companies at Kirkland & Ellis requires Brice to put his skills to the test in both data-driven and legal analysis. Does a transaction follow the contract? Will it make sense in the marketplace? Brice’s dual-degree background prepared him to think critically and ask the right questions on both the legal and business fronts.

Hear how Brice’s academic training and a strong alumni community in Houston have made him an invaluable part of the firm and an asset to his clients.
