Ackerson Kauffman Fex has appeared on the cover of The National Law Journal and American Lawyer, two of the country’s most prominent legal publications. Our practice has been the subject of articles in The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Fortune and other national, regional and industry publications.
We have achieved a rare level of national recognition because of our record of results in complex cases and because of the innovative ways that we achieve success for our clients.
Our law firm is built on the strengths of our three partners: Nels Ackerson, who has been practicing since 1971; Kathleen Kauffman, who has been practicing since 1979; and Cecilia Fex, who has been practicing since 1991. Our Washington, DC-based team is further strengthened through strategic alliances with law firms across the United States.
The daily work of each of our attorneys is dedicated to resolving our clients’ most challenging legal issues. The forums in which we work include state and federal courts, congressional hearings and legislation, federal administrative agencies, state legislatures and international tribunals. When appropriate, we also direct efforts to gain the support of the public.
To get results for our clients, we have negotiated novel solutions, achieved courtroom successes that have resulted in new laws favorable to our clients, drafted congressional and state legislation and won judgments at trial.
