Recognised for its sophisticated clients and capabilities as well as its outstanding team of professionals, Akin Gump is a global law firm, with 20 offices and over 900 lawyers in a wide range of practices and industries. Akin Gump’s steadfast dedication to providing exemplary client service and its visionary leadership are key factors in this first-generation law firm’s swift rise to the top of the profession.

Abu Dhabi:

The Abu Dhabi office includes skilled lawyers who have a wide breadth of experience in fields that range from traditional strengths such as corporate, energy and public policy to 21st-century concentrations such as intellectual property, cybersecurity, investment funds, information technology, national security and dispute resolution.

The Beijing office assists clients seeking both to enter Chinese markets and to extend their businesses beyond China. Its lawyers counsel Chinese firms as well as foreign investors in cross-border mergers and acquisitions and other types of transactional matters.

The Dubai office focuses on advising public and private sector clients in a range of practice areas in which the lawyers have broad experience, including energy, oil and gas, antibribery and economic sanctions and other international trade controls.

Located in one of the most active centers for finance activity, Akin Gump’s Frankfurt office focuses on highprofile financial restructurings, corporate and finance transactions, disputes and regulatory matters throughout Germany, Scandinavia, Central and Eastern Europe.

The Geneva office anchors Akin Gump’s tax and crossborder transactions practices on the continent and serves as a platform for the firm’s international trade practice in relation to the World Trade Organization and other Geneva-based international organisations.

Hong Kong:
The firm’s Hong Kong office offers legal services and counsel to international and pan-Asian US and international clients with interests in China and greater Asia. The firm’s lawyers have extensive experience counseling Asian and other international clients on corporate M&A, investigations and anti-corruption, finance and financial restructuring, global energy and transactions, international trade and compliance, investment funds, litigation and dispute resolution.

The London office is the main hub for Akin Gump’s international practice. Core strengths include financial restructuring, corporate transactions (including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and private equity), complex finance, energy, debt and equity capital markets, financial services regulatory, disputes, international arbitration, investment funds, international trade, EU competition and tax.

The Moscow office is the base for the firm’s practice in Russia and the CIS—one of the firm’s largest practices outside the United States. Lawyers from the Moscow office collaborate closely with Akin Gump lawyers and policy advisors in other offices around the world to advise clients with respect to capital market transactions in Russia and the West; mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures (often in relation to energy and telecommunications); project finance privatisations, international arbitration and litigation in Russia and other jurisdictions; and complex public law and policy matters.
