\ Ak-ri-vis \

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

A Client-Focused Experience with Major Law Firm Sophistication.

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 premier global law firms.  They offer an invaluable knowledge base gained from advising major clients on sophisticated, often high-profile matters.  We combine this with an eye to handling our clients’ needs responsively, efficiently, and effectively, serving clients valuing knowledge, efficiency, and obtaining outcomes over firm size.

Clients come to us if they understand and appreciate the sophistication and complexity of their matters and value subject-matter expertise and outcome-driven approaches we offer, whether it is for ongoing advice or high-stakes defense representation. 

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 and we have evolved to become a “go-to” firm in key areas of international business. Akrivis is called on regularly to advise clients with sophisticated issues, be they NYSE and FTSE-listed businesses, key middle-market players with an international footprint, or high net worth individuals with complex needs.  Our name frequently appears in international media as a trusted, globally recognized authority on these issues. 

Outcome-Driven Approaches Grounded in Subject Matter Knowledge & Expertise

Akrivis views itself as not just an agent, but 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 firm’s 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.  This outcome-driven approach requires us to work towards end-goals from the onset, rather than complicating matters. 

Leveraging Experience and Knowledge to Keep Legal Costs Manageable

Experience and high-value knowledge help keep costs under control.  We strive 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, we leverage our vast network of world-class experts around the world, and technology-driven solutions, keeping overhead low and billing efficient.
