Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, founded by Robert S. Strauss and Richard A. Gump in 1945, is one of the world’s largest firms. Its growth has come by understanding client problems – and solving them with a strategic combination of legal, practical and political skills.
The company’s vision is to address the array of legal challenges that clients may encounter in achieving their business goals. This vision has brought the firm depth, diversity and experience. And, it is still a first-generation firm. Those who built the firm continue to serve the clients that have grown with it.
