Several law firms have recruited new partners in their energy, environmental and IP practices in Washington, D.C., and the Baltimore region this past week, including Saul Ewing, White & Case and Greenberg Traurig.

Federal legislation, such as the Inflation Reduction Act and Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, has fueled demand for energy, aviation, and environmental expertise, among other practices, as clients ask for guidance on how to navigate new regulations and take advantage of tax credits. And IP litigation and AI technologies continue to fuel demand for patent lawyers.
