\ Ak-ri-vis \

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

Offering an Experience that Combines Major Law Firm Sophistication with a Focus on Clients.

Opening its doors to clients in 2013 with two attorneys, Akrivis is a boutique law firm focusing on Sanctions, Export Controls & Trade Regulation Compliance & Defense, Banking & Finance, International Business Transactions, and Anti-Corruption.   Our senior attorneys bring years of experience from some of the world’s largest global law firms.  They offer an invaluable knowledge base gained from advising major clients on sophisticated, often high-profile matters.  They combine this with an eye to handing our clients’ needs responsively, efficiently, and effectively, serving clients valuing knowledge, efficiency, and obtaining outcomes over firm size.

Accessible and Familiar with a Global Reach

Today Akrivis has grown to represent and advise clients from around the United States, Europe, Asia, Middle East, Africa, and Australasia.  Given this global reputation, our impact far outweighs our size. We are called on regularly to advise on critical middle market clients, as well as NYSE and FTSE-listed, and other public companies around the world.  Importantly, Akrivis is 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. More importantly, clients rely on us for sensitive defense and compliance-oriented advice.

Outcome-Driven Approaches Grounded in Subject Matter Knowledge & Expertise

Akrivis views itself as not just an agent but also a stakeholder in its clients’ affairs. We approach our practice areas with a deep knowledge base in the underlying subject matter and precision that is difficult to rival. Importantly, our practice areas tend to be ones where the reasoning, approaches, and decisions of federal agencies and courts are seldom fully released to the public, making our experience base particularly valuable to our clients.  Our outcome-driven approach involves working towards end-goals early, not complicating matters. 

Leveraging Experience and Knowledge to Keep Legal Costs Manageable

Experience helps keep costs under control.  We look to create long-lasting ties and bill our clients in a value-driven manner, focusing both on rates and work volume efficiency.  With few internal layers and a wide range of world-class experts from around the globe, we leverage our vast network and technology-driven solutions, keeping overhead low and billing efficient.
