Venable Chairman Stu Ingis was interviewed in a March 1, 2017, American Lawyer article about the new leaders at several of the nation's top law firms. During the interview, Mr. Ingis expressed optimism about Venable's future with a practice mix focusing on technology and innovation.
"There is always a demand for stuff that is unique and really, really good legal service that other people don't have the experience or background in," said Ingis. "So demand or rate pressures or the president, none of that impacts this." He also pointed to his colleagues who work on issues related to driverless cars and cybersecurity. "We think that positions us well for the long haul irrespective of the trends in the legal marketplace."
Despite a slowdown in litigation nationwide, Ingis noted that the firm's traditional products liability and commercial litigation practices remain strong. He said the biggest challenge ahead is to "be able to...stick to what we do in the face of what is happening all around us."
