He complements our team and shares our commitment to providing superior service to, and creating solutions for, clients. He will be a great asset to our firmwide corporate practice.”

Allen said of his move, “Akin Gump is a terrific platform for me and offers a compelling U.S. and global footprint through which I will be able to assist my clients. I am very much looking forward to working with my new partners in an effort to further strengthen Akin Gump’s market-leading corporate practice, both here in California and elsewhere. This is an incredibly appealing opportunity, and I am very excited to be here.”
