Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld Company History Timeline

(42 Jobs)

The firm was founded in Dallas, Texas, in 1945 by Robert Strauss and Richard Gump.


In early September 1950, Strauss and Gump added Irving Goldberg and William P. Fonville to the firm, which was then renamed Goldberg, Fonville, Gump & Strauss.


Fonville’s departure—and the ascent to named partner status of Alan Feld, who had joined the firm in 1960—gave the firm the name it currently bears.


In 1963, Jack Hauer left a competitor to join the firm, which became known as Goldberg, Fonville, Gump, Strauss & Hauer.


Goldberg left the firm in 1966 to accept a federal judgeship on the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.


In 2013, Akin Gump adopted a "single tier" partnership structure, in which all partners have equity, abandoning the more popular "two tier" structure in which many partners have no equity interest.


She was succeeded by Nimesh Patel, who joined the firm in February 2019.
