On October 29, 2018, Alex Weingarten, a partner in Venable's Commercial Litigation Practice, was recognized by the Los Angeles Business Journal as a finalist in its Leaders in Law for Litigation.
In recognizing Weingarten, the Los Angeles Business Journal wrote:
Alex Weingarten represents clients in all facets of business litigation, with a particular emphasis on entertainment and trust litigation. He does not merely litigate cases and settle; he has a strong track record of picking juries and winning verdicts. Clients look to Weingarten to handle high-profile cases, protect their integrity during the very public litigation process, provide a fresh approach, and suggest novel and overlooked strategies. He is aggressive about optimizing results and prides himself on finding the most direct route to victory. Sometimes that means finding a creative solution around a difficult problem; sometimes it means bowling through it. Over the past 18 months, he has tried and won four cases, and orchestrated favorable settlement outcomes in countless others.
Weingarten is also a leader in the Los Angeles legal community. After previous service as the Chair of the Jewish Federation of Los Angeles' Legal Division, he now serves as Chair of the Federation's Community Engagement Division and is a member of the Federation's board of directors.
