On April 16, 2018, the Los Angeles Business Journal published its list of the "Most Influential Women Attorneys for 2018" and recognized Venable partners, Celeste Brecht and Michele Mulrooney.

Mulrooney was recognized as "one of the top tax and wealth planning lawyers in the entertainment industry" whose "reputation as a trusted confidant and exceptional lawyer is based on her ability to balance the legal and personal complexities that exist at the intersection of family and corporate law for high-profile individuals."

Brecht was recognized for her “work successfully defeating class certification in a California consumer protection and unfair competition case and also recently obtained a favorable verdict on behalf of a leading media company in a defamation trial. She also won an anti-SLAPP motion, affirmed on appeal, on behalf of a high-profile actor, producer, and comedian, which defeated allegations of harassment, discrimination, and defamation.”
