Yesterday Venable announced a new management team and several leadership appointments. Brian Schwalb has been named Vice Chairman and Lindsay Meyer and Bob Waldman have been named Co-Managing Partners. Karl Racine, who served as Managing Partner for the last six years, will return to his white collar and commercial litigation law practice.

Since announcing the new leadership team, multiple publications have featured the news including the February 13, 2012 issues of the Washington Business Journal, Baltimore Business Journal, The Blog of Legal Times, National Journal’s “Influence Alley,” and Citybizlist.

In an interview with The Blog of Legal Times on the new team and structure, Waldman said, “In creating our management structure, we wanted to make sure we reflected the diversity and structure of our firm…The overall theme is that as the firm has grown and become more complex, management challenges continue to grow.” On splitting the duties of managing partner, Meyer said it would allow both her and Waldman to “continue with our practices and shepherd the robust growth that we’ve seen at Venable.” Commenting on her vision for the future of Venable after a successful year of growth, Meyer added, “We have the benefit of coming off a very strong year and we’re looking to continue that growth and expansion…We are very excited about this new opportunity and structure.”
