In recent days, Venable LLP announced that Greg Sater, one of the nation’s leading advertising attorneys, joined the firm’s Los Angeles office as a partner in the firm’s Intellectual Property Litigation group.

Sater joins Venable from Rutter Hobbs & Davidoff in Los Angeles. There, he built an intellectual property litigation practice in advertising, marketing, trademark, copyright, publicity right, trade dress, trade secret and other IP issues. In particular, he represents direct response television advertisers, online marketers and other direct-to-consumer marketers and retailers in connection with intellectual property issues, false or deceptive advertising concerns, compliance with state and federal advertising regulations, and business contracts.

As well as the multitude of jury trials in which Sater has been involved, Sater has briefed and argued precedent setting cases before the California Supreme Court and other appellate courts.

Jeffrey D. Knowles, head of Venable’s Advertising and Marketing Practice Group was quoted as saying in a press release at the firm’s website: “For more than a decade, Greg has been a colleague, collaborator and friend. Now I am proud to call him my partner. Greg’s creative and talented practice of law will enhance the formidable depth and breadth of Venable’s Advertising practice.  In addition, Greg’s current clients will now benefit from the depth of Venable’s resources.”
