Carlos Méndez-Peñate, NY Office Managing Partner, Akerman

What are some of your proudest recent achievements? From a professional perspective, serving in my role as Akerman’s office managing partner for New York and serving as the leader in recruiting, I am extremely gratified by the success in our efforts to grow Akerman’s New York office from 35 lawyers to 125. We have built a balanced, diverse office in the most competitive legal market in the country featuring world-class talent who embrace the firm’s collaborative culture. And our work continues. From a philanthropic perspective, I am proud of contributing to improving the lives of children in the foster care system in New York and nationally through CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates). We make a real difference in the lives of children, which is incredibly rewarding.
