Two recent deals on which Akin Gump worked have been featured by The Lawyer in its roundup of “the most prominent mandates that have been keeping offshore lawyers busy”:

In Markel’s €3.13 billion acquisition of Bermuda-based reinsurer Alterra Capital Holdings, an Akin Gump team of partners Kerry Berchem, Jeffrey Kochian, Ron Grabov-Nardini, Anthony Swisher and Rolf Zaiss co-counseled Alterra.

In the Alfa Group, Access Industries and Renova consortium’s sale of its 50 percent stake in TNK-BP to Russian oil company Rosneft for $55 billion—reportedly the largest-ever acquisition in Russia and the BVI (where TNK-BP’s holding company was based), Akin Gump partners Ilya Rybalkin and Steve Blakeley counseled Renova.
