Meet Our Trainees and Former Trainees

The associates and trainees at Akin Gump are exceptional and each adds something unique to our firm. They are achievers, constantly striving to raise the bar. Meet a few of the associates and trainees who are making their mark at Akin Gump.


  • Meet Bhavik Mehta

    Bhavik was looking for a firm offering high profile and internationally focused and finance related practices but that still retained the strong mentoring and flexibilities of a small trainee intake.

  • Meet Diana Dai

    Diana wanted to work at a firm with an excellent reputation that would match her commercial law interests and provide immediate exposure to a high level of responsibility.

  • Rachel Beddoe

    Rachel wanted to experience a vacation scheme at a US firm with a solid reputation to clearly understand what work would be available and how the smaller trainee intake was supported.

  • Meet Lennart Garritsen

    Lennart was interested in training in a collegiate and supportive working environment that would give exposure to high-value, complex and precedent-setting cases.
