Akin Gump Releases 2008 Annual Review

(Washington, D.C.) Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP is pleased to announce that it has released the 2008 edition of its firm annual review.  The annual review features an overview of both commercial and pro bono work that the firm’s lawyers and advisors have done on behalf of clients worldwide as well as information on internal initiatives that also serve the firm’s clients and communities.

In one of the most challenging environments in recent times, our attorneys and advisors counseled clients on the shifting complexities of the economic stabilization legislation, helped them secure funds in shrinking capital markets and tried important—and, in some instances, precedent-setting—cases across a spectrum of litigation practices. Akin Gump’s pro bono practice not only increased the hours worked per lawyer by almost 25 percent, but also earned hard-fought victories for clients seeking refuge from persecution, struggling to avoid homelessness and seeking to preserve American historic heritage in the mid-Atlantic region.
