Akin Gump Again Among Am Law’s “A-List” of Top Law Firms

Akin Gump is pleased to announce it has again been named to The American Lawyer’s A-List, the publication’s annual ranking of the country’s 20 leading law firms. This is the second time in three years that the firm has been named to this prestigious list.

The A-List was created in 2003 to assess the overall quality of the nation’s largest and most prominent firms by evaluating a number of factors: financial performance, attorney diversity, pro bono work and associate satisfaction.

Akin Gump chairperson Kim Koopersmith said, “We are tremendously pleased to be once again named to The American Lawyer’s A-List, because what it measures—the value of the work we do for our clients, our commitment to our communities and our success in fostering a diverse workplace that also attracts and trains the next generation of outstanding practitioners—are areas in which we have striven to excel. It’s fitting that we once again take home this honor during a year in which we are remembering the immense contributions made by our late founder, Bob Strauss. I cannot think of a better commemoration of the mark he left on our firm and the legal profession than this.”

Founded in 1945, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP is a leading international law firm with more than 850 attorneys in offices throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
