About Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld

Akin Gump’s London office is the hub for the firm’s international practice. A fast paced environment, the London office is also well known for its commercial approach, its commitment to client service and its focus on teamwork.

By working together in an immersive learning environment, lawyers are challenged to elevate their thinking and to provide innovative solutions.  The firm’s market-leading practices include financial restructuring, corporate and equity capital markets, private equity, debt finance, project finance, energy, litigation and international arbitration, financial services regulatory, investment funds, international trade, EU competition and tax.

By focusing on a smaller trainee intake, we maintain flexibility and seek to grow through junior lawyer retention. Seats can be tailored across the two-year training programme to provide a breadth of experience and some trainees have enjoyed international secondments. We offer a unique opportunity for our trainees to apply to become a Pro Bono Scholar.  Successful applicants attend one of our Pro Bono Scholars Boot Camps in the US for a week of training, networking and social justice programme attendance and work with our Pro Bono Committee to help deepen relationships with not-for-profit organisations.
