Last week, Venable announced the formation of a State Attorney General Practice led by former Arkansas Attorney General and U.S. Senator Mark L. Pryor. The firm also announced the addition of Kevin L. Turner, Alabama's former Chief Deputy Attorney General, as counsel in the Washington, DC office. In that role, Turner had his hand in virtually every type of criminal, civil and policy matter handled by the attorney general, including financial services regulations, energy and environmental policy, gaming, data privacy and security, as well as food, drug and tobacco regulations.
The Washington Post and Arkansas Online noted Turner's addition and the launch of the new practice on May 17, 2015.
