About Us

\ Ak-ri-vis \

A commitment to provide the highest quality legal expertise, personalized service, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness to clients around the world.  The word Akrivis means “precise” in Greek, and precision lies as the cornerstone of our practice, focus, and attention to clients.

A Client-Focused Experience Integrating Global Law Firm Sophistication 

Opening its doors to clients in 2013, Akrivis is a boutique law firm focusing on International Business Transactions, White Collar & Corporate Investigations & Defense, Sanctions, Export Controls & Trade Regulation, and Banking & Finance.   Our senior attorneys come with years of experience from some of the most prominent global law firms, bringing an invaluable knowledge base gained from advising major clients on sophisticated, often high-profile matters, but with an eye to working in a manner responsive to our clients’ needs – efficiently and effectively, serving clients who value knowledge, efficiency, and obtaining outcomes over firm size.

Global in Reach but Accessible and Approachable

Akrivis represents clients from around the United States, Europe, Asia, Middle East, Africa, and Australasia.  Our impact far outweighs our size, with Akrivis being known as a “go-to” firm in our key practice areas.  Our name frequently appears in international media as a trusted, globally recognized authority on these issues and more importantly, clients rely on us for sensitive defense and compliance-oriented advice.

Outcome-Driven Approaches Grounded in Subject Matter Expertise

We understand and approach our practice areas with a deep knowledge base in the underlying subject matter and a precision that is difficult to rival.  Clients come to Akrivis if they value subject matter expertise in our core competencies.  We work in practice areas where reasoning, approaches, and decisions by federal agencies and courts are seldom fully released to the public, making our experience base particularly invaluable to our clients.

Most importantly, Akrivis focuses on reaching solutions and outcomes.  We establish and work towards end-goals early on, rather than focusing on complicating matters.  Akrivis considers wins for our clients to also be wins for us, not just fee-generating exercises.  We consider ourselves full, actual stakeholders in our matters rather than merely our clients’ agents.

Leveraging Experience and Knowledge to Manage Legal Costs 

Having experience in a subject area helps you keep costs under control.  We look to the long term and bill our clients in a value-driven manner, focusing both on keeping rates manageable and work volume efficient.  We have few internal layers and are able to draw on world-class experts around the globe as required, leveraging both our vast network and technology-driven solutions.  .
