Related Topics

US law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld (Akin Gump) has appointed Tim Becker as a partner based in Boston ahead of the opening of the firm’s new office in the city, according to a report by the Global Legal Post.

Becker, who advises private equity funds, venture capital funds and hedge funds on US and international tax and structuring issues relating to fund formation, operations and investments, joins Akin Gump from Boston-based Choate Hall & Stewart, with fellow partner Wells Miller. 

Miller’s practice focuses on advising fund clients on all matters relating to executive compensation, including drafting, negotiating and implementing non-qualified deferred compensation plans, equity and equity-based incentive compensation arrangements, severance, change in control and executive employment agreements, particularly in the context of mergers and acquisitions.

Becker was previously a partner at Akin Gump in New York and has re-joined the firm following an interval of almost eight years at Choate Hall and a short stint as an independent practitioner. 

Akin Gump’s 70-lawyer strong tax practice is led from New York by partners Patrick Fenn and Stuart Leblang and counts Blackstone Alternative Asset Management, Diamondback Energy and 7-Eleven as clients.
