Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP Overview
Akin Gump’s pro bono commitment to serving clients in need irrespective of ability to pay is unequivocal, from asylum applicants fleeing persecution to U.S. servicemen and –women, from the indigent in our nation’s largest cities to disadvantaged schoolchildren working to better themselves. Our commitment to environmental responsibility reflects Akin Gump’s connection to the issues affecting the community in which we work as well as our clients.
Akin Gump has, in the span of a single generation, grown to become one of the world’s largest firms, with more than 900 lawyers practicing in an array of practices and industries in offices around the globe. This short film is a journey through the history of Akin Gump, featuring stories of those whose hard work, dedication and commitment helped transform the firm into the global presence it is today. Akin Gump’s pro bono practice depends on our partnerships with legal services organizations, which screen cases, refer them to our firm and help train and mentor our lawyers.
The firm has been honored to receive substantial recognition for its work from legal media and nonprofit organizations. In recent years, we have been proud to be recognized by the National Law Journal, Whitman-Walker Health, the Los Angeles Center for Law and Justice, the Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program, Human Rights Initiative, Her Justice, and Human Rights First, among others, for our pro bono commitment. We recognize that pro bono service is a matter of personal choice, and we are proud that so many of the firm’s lawyers have consistently demonstrated that they share our institutional commitment.
