More than ever, Venable attorneys are well positioned to serve client needs in the Bay Area and throughout Northern California

Venable LLP’s San Francisco office continues to experience strong growth since opening its office more than three years ago and has relocated to a larger space for the third time as part of its ongoing development. The new office, at 101 California Street in the Financial District, occupies a floor and a half, with options for further expansion. And since October 2013, the local practice has grown nearly sixfold, to 30 attorneys and 19 staff.

“We have grown with a clear focus on relationships. We have worked tirelessly to be our clients’ trusted advisors and counsel, and will continue to serve them faithfully in the future. In support of that mission, our attorneys, whether newcomers to Venable or veterans, find great satisfaction in working within the office and across the firm to deliver. This helps us find talented attorneys to further build our expertise locally. It really has been a virtuous circle driving our growth,” said James E. Nelson, partner-in-charge of the San Francisco office.

Nelson continued, “Venable has leveraged its unique regulatory acumen, particularly in DC, to benefit its Bay Area clients. As a result, companies in the Bay Area are turning to Venable as their one-stop shop that can address government actions, while they work to build and sustain their businesses in highly regulated environments. Whether your concerns relate to data privacy, financial technology, health technology, self-driving cars, or any of a myriad of regulated areas, Venable is well suited to help. We also continue to augment our other areas of strength, such as intellectual property, litigation, corporate, tax, and real estate, as we add to our local team.”

Venable’s San Francisco office is well known for servicing the following industries and sectors: advertising, consumer product goods, financial service, food and beverage, healthcare, high-net-worth families and individuals, hospitality, nonprofits, retail, and technology. The office’s key marquee practices include Commercial Litigation, Consumer Class Action Defense, Corporate, Environment, Intellectual Property, International Tax, Product Liability and Mass Torts, and Tax and Wealth Planning.

Key new lateral hires in the last two years have included Meredith R. Bushnell, a partner in the Tax and Wealth Planning Practice; Suzanne C. Farley, counsel in the Tax and Wealth Planning Practice; William M. Sloan, a partner in the Environment Practice; Scott D. Thompson, tax and employee benefits counsel; Tyler G. Welti, counsel in the Environmental Practice; and Shannon Yavorsky, a partner in the eCommerce, Privacy and Cybersecurity, and Intellectual Property practices.
