Why Join Us?

  • Akin Gump’s Hong Kong office has supportive, friendly teams. You will get to know everyone in a warm, collegiate environment, which is part of a premier international law firm operating in multiple jurisdictions.
  • The Hong Kong office is an integral part of Akin Gump’s cross-border, cross-practice offering and boasts a team of highly-regarded and motivated lawyers working collaboratively with other international offices to provide seamless and responsive quality service to sophisticated international clients.
  • We embrace diversity and understand that great lawyers come from different walks of life. We have a tight knit community of legal professionals with different backgrounds, personalities and experience who collaborate together to create effective and innovative solutions for our clients.
  • We only seek out a small intake of trainees each year. Each trainee is treated as an integral part of the team and gains a bespoke training experience and maximum exposure to a variety of types of work. By focusing on a smaller intake of trainees, we maintain flexibility and seek to continue to grow organically through junior lawyer retention.
  • All of our trainees gain plenty of exposure to more senior lawyers and partners, who are very willing to mentor and coach them. We invest a significant amount of resources in developing our trainees into future leading practitioners.
  • You will have the chance of sitting within a number of practice groups, including financial restructuring, corporate/M&A, funds/investment management, investigations and dispute resolution, whilst undertaking a broad diet of work involving lawyers from these groups and others.
  • We aim to provide a fully rounded training experience and pride ourselves in having an inclusive, positive and supportive environment.
