Venable's Litigation Division was recognized as the "Maryland Firm of the Year" in Benchmark Litigation 2018 Awards. Venable's Litigation group includes over 200 attorneys, many of whom are seasoned trial lawyers with experience in both our "home courts" in New York, California, the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia, and in jurisdictions around the country. The group regularly handle disputes involving commercial and financial transactions, product liability, antitrust, consumer class actions, employment, bankruptcy and workout issues, real estate, intellectual property, securities, tax, and unfair competition. Venable also has a substantial, nationwide appellate practice at the federal and state level, and is regularly brought in by clients to handle appeals.
Benchmark Litigation awards are the result of a thorough, six-month research period. Throughout this time, researchers conduct extensive interviews with litigators and their clients to identify the leading attorneys and firms. In addition, researchers examine recent casework handled by law firms and ask sources to offer their professional opinions on litigators practicing within their state or national areas.
