With seven partners and nine other attorneys dedicated to antitrust, AKIN GUMP STRAUSS HAUER & FELD’s DC team has expanded significantly in recent years. The firm represents Wilhelmsen, a global maritime company, in its acquisition of Drew Marine, a competitor in the supply of marine chemicals, as well as acting for 7-Eleven in its $3.3 billion acquisition of more than 1,000 Sunoco convenience stores and gas stations. Akin Gump also serves as lead antitrust counsel to AT&T for its pre-close integration planning efforts in connection with its mergers and acquisitions for all of its recent significant transactions, including its acquisitions of Time Warner and DIRECTV. The team also represented US Concrete in a class action brought by purchasers of ready-mix concrete and got US Concrete dismissed from the case and the complaint limited to a two-year period for the remaining defendants.
