Law360 and Wall Street Journal feature Doug Mishkin’s move to Venable

1 min

Earlier this week, Venable announced the addition of Doug Mishkin as a partner in the firm’s Labor and Employment Group in Washington, DC. He focuses on litigating about and counseling on theft of trade secrets and breach of noncompetes, with significant experience as well in discrimination, harassment, wage and hour, and employment contract disputes. An experienced trial attorney, Mishkin has represented clients in state and federal courts across the country.

Speaking with Law360 in a June 26, 2014 article, Mishkin said one of his main goals at Venable “is to grow its practice that pertains to the litigation of and counseling about noncompete and theft of trade secret matters.” Talking about a past case that stands out in his mind, Mishkin cited an employment discrimination suit involving the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act in which a lower court and the Fourth Circuit both agreed with his arguments. “There were a number of wrinkles, but I liked it because it was not a well-established argument.”

The Wall Street Journal also noted Mishkin’s move in two articles on June 27 and June 29.
