Texas-based law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld has raided US rival King & Spalding for a team of 10 energy lawyers.
Christine LaFollette, Tony Nunes, Mark Zvonkovic and Kevin Keenan join as partners and William Alexander and Edward Pointevent join as senior counsel. The firm has also scooped senior counsel Sheila Tweed from Kinder Morgan.
The 11-lawyer haul is the first sign of expansion at Akin Gump since energy head Douglas Glass joined from Vinson & Elkins in March. Glass’s practice is based out of London and Moscow.
