Akin Gump acquires 7 Haynes and Boone partners

Move illustrates strength of legal services market

Seven Haynes and Boone lawyers in Texas are planning to jump ship and head over to Akin Gump—further evidence that the legal services climate is looking up.

Akin Gump announced yesterday that it would be adding the seven partners to its Dallas office, but the firm did not say when the transition would take place. The lawyers will be working in various practice areas, including litigation, corporate M&A and white collar criminal defense.
