It’s been a busy week for Venable. The law firm welcomed two new lawyers. Glenn Ivey, who just ended his eight-year tenure as Prince George’s County state’s attorney, joined Venable as a partner in the white-collar and government-investigations practices. And David Joy, most recently a senior staff attorney at the Food and Drug Administration, joined Venable as of counsel in the food-and-drug practice.
Venable also announced its 2011 partner promotions, including one in the firm’s Washington office: Jacqueline Levasseur Patt is now a partner in the trademark-copyright-and-licensing practice.
Bingham McCutchen has announced its 2011 partner class as well. There are four new Washington-based partners: Sandra Franco, a member of the environmental-land-use-and-natural-resources group; Robert Gross, who belongs to the structured-transactions practice; Joshua Sterling, who focuses on investment management; and Bradford Whitehurst, a member of the tax-and-employee-benefits practice.
Finally, the National Association of Manufacturers brought on Brian Raymond as director of technology and domestic economic policy. Raymond was most recently deputy chief of staff for Democratic representative Anna Eshoo.
