Axinn Veltrop & Harkrider LLP

Axinn is a different kind of law firm. It combines the skills, experience and dedication of the world’s largest firms with the focus, responsiveness, efficiency and attention to client needs of the best boutiques. Established in the late 1990s by lawyers from premier Wall Street firms with a common vision, Axinn competes head-to-head – and wins – against the world’s leading firms in matters of strategic importance to our clients. The firm has been joined by nearly 70 lawyers from the best firms and law schools who share that vision and are devoted to providing the highest conceivable quality of service in three practice areas: antitrust, intellectual property and high-stakes litigation.

Axinn has earned an exceptional worldwide reputation in all aspects of antitrust and competition law, including mergers, criminal/cartel investigations and litigation. Our attorneys have been global lead counsel on some of the most significant recent matters, including the largest cash merger in US history, the largest tech deal in history and a wide array of cutting-edge litigation and counselling matters. Axinn is a go-to firm for many major corporations in global and high-stakes antitrust matters and has served as lead global coordinating counsel in mergers valued at more than US$200 billion combined, including several major deals with filings in the United States, EU, China and Brazil. 

Axinn was recently named ‘Firm of the Year – Americas’ by Global Competition Review. The firm was honoured for being global lead counsel in its representation of Ball Corp in its US$6.8 billion acquisition of Rexam, creating the largest aluminum can beverage company in the world. It also acted as global lead counsel for Dell in its proposed US$67 billion acquisition of EMC. In recent years, Axinn has been recognised by GCR for Lawyer of the Year, Matter of the Year and Merger Control Matter of the Year, and is annually included in the GCR 100.
