Founded in 1873, we stand on the shoulders of more than 140 years of achievement, but we never rest on our reputation.
For over a century, we have built our firm based on a simple and enduring premise: We see the world through the eyes of our clients. We immerse ourselves in our clients' businesses to fully understand the context of their legal issues. Our clients know that our every decision – from hiring, to shaping our service areas, to expanding our global reach – is informed by our desire to better serve their needs.
Today, Venable is an American Lawyer 100 law firm. With more than 600 attorneys in nine offices across the country, we are strategically positioned to advance our clients’ business objectives in the U.S. and abroad. Our clients rely on Venable's proven capabilities in all areas of corporate and business law, complex litigation, intellectual property, and regulatory and government affairs.
Our attorneys have an excellent understanding of their practice areas and bring a wealth of firsthand experience to the challenges and opportunities our clients face. In this era of ever-increasing scrutiny by the government, our clients benefit from Venable’s Washington know-how. Our attorneys, many of whom are former Members of Congress, regulators and senior government staffers, have the experience to provide solutions when government creates regulatory roadblocks.
Each year, Venable attorneys and staff devote thousands of hours of their own time, money and talent to helping the communities in which they live and work. Venable's commitment to social responsibility includes financial support through The Venable Foundation. In 2014, we provided more than $2 million in support to charities and organizations. This placed us in the top five law firms nationally with regard to charitable donations.
Venable aims to deliver the highest quality legal services for our clients, and we pride ourselves on identifying, recruiting and retaining the best and brightest attorneys and legal staff from all walks of life. Our clients profit from a diverse set of perspectives that, paired with more than a century of proven experience, is unique to Venable.
