Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld has hired two new private equity funds lawyers in London.

Daniel Quinn and Alexander Bakic join the firm from O'Melveny & Myers.

Both partners focus on private equity fund formation and secondary transactions including fund restructurings and portfolio sales.

Akin Gump has a strong reputation in the UK for bondholder and fund representation in restructurings as reflected by its IFLR1000 ranking. The firm has built impressively on the solid base it inherited from the former Bingham McCutchen team that joined the firm in 2014.
