Akin Gump “Loads Up on Talent,” Writes Commercial Dispute Resolution

Commercial Dispute Resolution, in its article “Akin Gump loads up on talent,” spotlights the arrival of new litigation partner and former SEC senior trial counsel Joseph Boryshansky to Akin Gump and links his engagement with that of a number of other recent high-profile arrivals.

CDR notes that Boryshansky, who joined the firm’s New York office in the white collar defense and government investigations practice on April 22, follows the arrival of

  • policy partner and former White House deputy assistant for legislative affairs Ed Pagano
  • Supreme Court practice head and former assistant to the solicitor general Pratik Shah
  • litigation partner and former Justice Dept. financial crimes and corruption unit head Chuck Connolly
  • senior counsel and former WTO Appellate Body counselor Alan Yanovich,

all of whom joined the firm in 2013 and 2014.

Akin Gump chairperson Kim Koopersmith said, “We’ve been very successful adding top-tier talent to our stellar white collar practice recently,” noting, besides Boryshansky and Connolly, the arrivals of white collar partners Steve Reich and Aaron Murphy to the firm.
