Compensation and Benefits

You’ll work hard at Akin Gump, and we work just as hard to provide the right compensation and benefits. Benefits include:  

  • market-competitive salaries ($3,500 per week for summer associates and $180,000 annually for first year associates)
  • travel reimbursement to and from the firm to start summer program employment and return to law school
  • bar exam fee and study course reimbursement
  • paid moving expenses
  • benefits may vary by office; offices outside the United States follow the laws and regulations of the individual countries in which the offices are located and may differ from the above.

The firm also offers a comprehensive compensation and benefits package to its lawyers.
