Akin Gump expands foreign government lobbying services in deal with Cambodia

The U.S. law firm Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld is expanding its lobbying services for foreign government clients, signing a one-year contract to advocate for Cambodia on U.S. government relations.

The firm’s $720,000 contract was disclosed on Jan. 21 under a federal law that requires law firms, lobbying shops and public relations agencies to reveal certain engagements with foreign clients that extend beyond traditional legal services.

Akin Gump’s disclosure said the firm, a perennial lobbying powerhouse in Washington, D.C., will “conduct outreach” with U.S. officials as part of an effort “to build new relationships that will help to move the bilateral relationship between Cambodia and the U.S. forward.”
