Akin Gump Consolidates Its London Offices
(London) - Akin Gump is pleased to announce that all lawyers and staff of Akin Gump LLP in London are now located under one roof. The consolidation follows the move in October 2014 of Bingham McCutchen’s London office to Akin Gump, which more than doubled the size of the firm’s London office and added substantially to its client offerings.
Effective immediately, all Akin Gump London lawyers and staff are located at:
Ten Bishops Square
London E1 6EG
Sebastian Rice, managing partner of Akin Gump in London, commented, “We are pleased to be under one roof and believe that this will be good both for our clients and our collaboration with each other, particularly, as we continue to pursue cross-practice opportunities and initiatives in London and internationally.”
