Akin Gump’s Q1 Performance in Energy Sector Places It Among “Major Players”: Aol Energy

In its article “Energy Legal Work Takes the Number Two Spot,” Aol Energy characterized Akin Gump as among the “major players” in the U.S. for the first quarter of 2013, based on Mergermarket’s Legal Advisor League Tables.

Among the deals that Akin Gump’s energy team was involved in during the first quarter of 2013 was advising the conflicts committee of the LINN Energy board of directors in LINN’s purchase of Berry Petroleum Company, a deal valued in excess of $4 billion.

According to Aol Energy, energy sector legal work by deal value was second only to that performed in the technology, media and telecom sector.
