Akin Gump Named “Best European Law Firm” at Hedgeweek’s Global Awards 2015

(London) – Akin Gump was today named the “Best European Law Firm” at the Hedgeweek Global Awards 2015, awarded at an event in London's Mayfair that brought together the leading names in the global hedge funds industry to celebrate the achievements of the best-performing managers and service providers in 2014.

The results are based on votes the publication received from its readers, including institutional and high-net-worth investors as well as managers and other industry professionals. Poll participants were asked to vote for companies that they rated “best in class” in more than 40 categories.
