Akin Gump is a leading global law firm providing innovative legal services and business solutions to individuals and institutions. We are one of the world’s largest law firms, with more than 900 lawyers and professionals in 20 offices, yet we strive to provide every client focused and consistent attention. Our firm’s clients range from individuals to corporations and foreign governments.
We were founded in Texas in 1945 by Robert Strauss and Richard Gump, with the guiding vision that commitment, excellence and integrity would drive the success of the firm. We incorporated those qualities into the firm’s core values as we grew into an international, full-service law firm positioned at the intersection of commerce, policy and the law. Our goal in every engagement is to offer a level of client service that not only meets but anticipates our clients’ needs and exceeds their expectations. From reputational defense of headline-makers to down- and midstream energy investments, from precedential class action dismissals to protection of terrorism’s victims, we serve clients in over 85 practices that range from the traditional, such as litigation and corporate, to the contemporary, such as climate change and cybersecurity. Our lawyers, many of them with years of experience in the boardroom, on the bench and in the halls of government, collaborate across borders and practice areas to provide comprehensive counsel.
