(Washington, D.C.) – Five Akin Gump partners—Chip Cannon, Jeffery Dennis, Suedeen Kelly (energy regulation, markets and enforcement), Natasha Kohne and David Turetsky (cybersecurity, privacy and data protection)—have been selected for the first-annual Readers’ Choice Awards organized by content disseminator JD Supra.

Messrs. Cannon and Dennis were selected as Top Authors in the Energy Industry topic, Mr. Cannon and Ms. Kelly as Top Authors in the Utilities Sector topic, and Ms. Kohne and Mr. Turetsky as Top Authors in the Cybersecurity topic.

Separately, “FERC Staff Notice of Alleged Violations Accuses Columbia Gas of Failing to Publicly Post Notices of Auctions,” an article by Akin Gump energy regulation, markets and enforcement counsel Scott Johnson placed third among the top-read articles in the Utilities topic. (The article, which appeared on Akin Gump’s AG Speaking Energy blog, can be read here.)

The Readers’ Choice Awards “recognize authors for the excellent visibility and engagement they attained with readers in specific industries…and for their visibility and thought leadership covering key, cross-industry topics.”

JD Supra editors selected the 26 industries and topics “for their timeliness as well as their proven, ongoing importance,” recognizing, in each category, the 10 authors with the consistently highest readership and engagement within that category for all of 2015. 200 authors were selected across these 26 categories from more than 34,000 who published their work during the year.

Founded in 1945, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP is a leading international law firm with more than 900 lawyers in offices throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
