On December 1, 2022, Jennifer Bruton was featured in Law360 on her new role as Venable’s partner-in-charge of the DC office. The following is an excerpt:

Among other things, you need a critical mass of people at an organization to make diverse individuals feel comfortable. We all recognize that a diverse workforce is a smarter workforce because you have different perspectives.
