Akerman has once again been ranked among the top 10 law firms in Central Florida by the Orlando Business Journal. Every year, the publication recognizes the leading law firms in the Lake, Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties of Central Florida.
The Orlando Sentinel previously recognized Akerman as one of the best workplaces in Central Florida on its Top 100 Companies list. The office includes 55 lawyers and is top-ranked in 14 practice areas, including banking and finance, commercial litigation, and real estate among others by U.S. News – Best Lawyers. The firm is also recognized for its leading diversity and inclusion practices, and among the most innovative law firms in social responsibility. In November, the Central Florida chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals presented Akerman with the 2019 National Philanthropy Award, recognizing the firm in the Corporate & Foundation Engagement category for its commitment to various philanthropic initiatives.
