The Daily Journal has once again included Venable partner Susan Hollander in its list of Top Women Lawyers in California. The list recognizes women with outstanding achievements within California's legal community. The Daily Journal reviewed hundreds of nominations from law firms, public agencies, nonprofits, and universities to select this group of women. The full list was published in a special supplement on May 2, 2018.

Discussing her high-power clients, which include Chicken of the Sea International and Francis Ford Coppola Industries, Ms. Hollander said, "There's a lot of enforcement work we do with these brands."

Hollander is lead counsel for Coppola Industries in its case against Copa di Vino, an Oregon-based winery. The suit alleges trademark and trade dress infringement in connection with wine bearing the name Copa and a "netting" trade dress that allegedly infringes on Francis Coppola's distinctive wire netting over its Diamond Collection Clarets. "Coppola is the only one that does that in the U.S.," Hollander said. The case settled on confidential terms last year. "No more netting on Oregon wine," she said.
