Akin Gump Again on Am Law’s A-List of Top 20 Law Firms

(Washington, D.C.) – For the third time in four years, The American Lawyer has selected Akin Gump for its A-List of the country’s 20 leading law firms.

The A-List, created in 2003, spotlights what Am Law calls the firms that are “best in show” and “that manage to combine enviable revenues with impressive pro bono dockets, contented associates and diversity in their lawyer ranks.” The list is compiled based on survey scores for revenue per lawyer, pro bono, associate satisfaction and diversity, with revenue and pro bono double-weighted.

Akin Gump chairperson Kim Koopersmith said, “We are very gratified to have again been named to The American Lawyer’s A-List, all the more so because the list’s criteria reflect the standards by which we measure our own success: Are we serving our clients to the best of our abilities? Are we making our communities better? Are we building the best law firm we can? I am delighted to say that each of these questions can be answered with a resounding ‘yes.’”

Founded in 1945, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP is a leading international law firm with more than 900 lawyers in offices throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
