Imoh Akpan

Franklin & Prokopik

Imoh AkpanAt the young age of 35, Imoh Akpan was promoted to principal at Franklin & Prokopik, a regional legal firm. Akpan specializes and excels in civil litigation in transportation, retail and hospitality. He focuses on negligent security and civil rights defense. He has taken more than 15 trials to verdict.

In his spare time, Akpan serves as the co-chair of the fundraising gala for the University of Baltimore’s Fannie Angelos Program for Academic Excellence — a program that prepares students from historically black colleges and universities for admission to law school and for the legal profession. He is also involved in the Black Law Students’ Association, providing professional mentorship and guidance to diverse law students.

“I have personally observed Imoh’s passion, dedication and time commitment to ensure that this program thrives and Imoh has worked with many law school students to help them gain employment upon graduating. He is a strong champion of supporting students (to) reach their academic and professional aspirations,” Neveen Kurtom, an attorney and Akpan’s law school classmate, said.
Akpan is also a member of the planning committee for the DRI Diversity for Success Expo. He also co-chairs his firm’s annual Maryland liability seminar.

I believe my participation with the (Fannie Angelos Program for Academic Excellence), as well as being involved with the Black Law Students’ Association, has provided professional mentorship and guidance to diverse law students.”
