Akin Gump Leads The Hill’s “Top Lobbyists” List with Five Named Among Industry’s Best

(Washington, D.C.) – Akin Gump is proud to announce that five members of its public law and policy practice—co-heads Hunter Bates and Brian Pomper, and Scott Parven, Arshi Siddiqui, Geoff Verhoff—have been named to The Hill’s annual survey of Top Lobbyists in the “Hired Guns” category. Akin Gump is the only organization to have five members recognized on the list. Going back to 2011, the firm has traditionally placed no fewer than four honorees on the list.

The Hill’s profile notes the fact that Messrs. Bates and Pomper have taken the reins of the practice—the most successful lobbying operation by revenue in Washington—as well as of the “all-star team” supporting them, which, The Hill reports, includes Ms. Siddiqui and Messrs. Parven and Verhoff.
