We are pleased to announce that Venable has been accepted as a member of GALA (Global Advertising Lawyers Alliance). GALA is an alliance of lawyers located throughout the world with particular expertise and experience in advertising, marketing and promotion law. (Click here to go to the GALA website.) Being a GALA member will help us better serve our many clients whose marketing efforts now span the globe. Firms participating in GALA represent nearly 100 countries ranging literally from A (Anguilla) to Z (Zimbabwe). While most countries have only one member firm, the United States, given the size of its economy, has three member firms. GALA members meet periodically around the globe. Next week members from the Americas will be meeting in Panama and our own Melissa Steinman and Amy Mudge will be among the featured speakers. Venable is honored to have been invited to participate in GALA and we look forward to discussing its many benefits further with our clients.
