Ahmed “Ed” Hossain is a Director on the Long Ridge Legal team. He advises attorneys across a wide range of practice areas and geographic markets in their lateral searches. Ed’s approach to recruiting is based on the same dedication to service that he learned as a practicing Attorney.
Previously, Ed was an Associate with Kirkland & Ellis LLP, where he focused on Private Equity and M&A transactions. Even as an Attorney, Ed has a passion in career coaching and recruiting. He engaged regularly with students on behalf of Kirkland and served as a volunteer mentor with the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity, a national organization aimed at increasing diverse representation in the legal profession.
Ed holds a JD from Columbia Law School and a BA in Philosophy (which he still uses to annoy guests at dinner parties) from the University of Houston.
