Public Law and Policy > Coalitions and Associations

Throughout its history, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP has assisted trade associations, coalitions and membership-based organizations to become recognized leaders in their industries while still meeting the needs and demands of organization members. Akin Gump is nationally known for its representation of clients at the intersection of law and public policy. Drawing on this strength, our coalition and trade association practice has developed an impressive and long-standing track record of successfully representing our clients before Congress and executive branch departments and agencies.

Our trade association and membership-based organization clients are active in a variety of business arenas, including agriculture, health care, nuclear energy, publicly owned utilities, military services, fisheries and aquaculture, private equity and professional sports. We also successfully represent a number of prominent business coalitions on issues related to tax, international trade and commerce, as well as membership-based organizations that focus on issues ranging from civil and human rights to food safety and increased use of public-private partnerships.

Akin Gump has been a leader in a wide variety of coalitions—as a participant, organizer and/or manager—and we take pride in our ability to work with a diverse group of stakeholders to achieve a common goal. Akin Gump is actively involved in, and has close relationships with, a number of associations and business organizations that we are able to draw upon to advance our clients’ issues.
