She's only good in lane against squishies who suck at fighting close-range, such as Ranged AD's, and most AP Casters.
So if you send a Tanky DPS, like Garen, or one of the tankier mages, like Rumble, you should be able to beat her in lane.

Also, she really only gets her laning power at level 6, and she tends to be a very feast or famine kind of champion, so if you can shut her down early, you should be fine.

Pink ward right in the middle of the lane.

She usually dominates squishies mid by Q -> pop -> E -> shroud then she'll repeat, this is pre 6.

Try and get an early pink ward (maybe from your jungler) then you can slow her down, if you beat her to 6 you should be in the clear.

Pretty much any AP champion... anyone extremely strong 1-6.

But Swain in particular.

Champions with AOE, nontargeted abilities really hurt Akali for obvious reasons. Silence or speed boosts/slows can help too.
