Venable partner Ralph Albrecht, an attorney in the Technology/Intellectual Property Division's Patent Prosecution Group, was recently named a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation (ABF). Albrecht practices in Venable's Tysons Corner, Virginia office.
Albrecht joins an elite group of attorneys nationally recognized for their leadership and professional excellence. Fellowship is a great honor and is limited to less than one percent of the attorneys in America. Albrecht is also the Immediate Past President of the Bar Association of the District of Columbia (BADC), the voluntary bar and nation's third oldest bar, founded in 1871.
The ABF was founded in 1952 by the American Bar Association (ABA) and is now recognized as the premier sociolegal research institute in the country. Fellows support the ABA's research, and participate in social events and educational programs during the ABA Midyear and Annual Meetings.
Albrecht joins twelve Venable attorneys in membership as Maryland Fellows: Benjamin R. Civiletti, Andrew Gendron, Paul T. Glasgow, James J. Hanks, Jr., John B. Howard, Dana Petersen Moore, Russell R. Reno, Jr., Kevin L. Shepherd, Nell B. Strachan, Paul F. Strain, Craig A. Thompson and Alan D. Yarbro.
