Davis & Gilbert Featured in The National Law Journal’s 2012 Midsize Hot List

Featured Article: "When it Comes to Marketing, They Go Way Back"

New York, April 25, 2012 – The National Law Journal has selected Davis & Gilbert LLP for its coveted 2012 Midsize Hot List. The list recognizes midsize law firms throughout the country that distinguished themselves by handling leading cases and transactions and by “spotting legal trends while they’re still emerging and positioning themselves to take advantage,” according to the publication. Only twenty firms were selected through a rigorous evaluation process, and Davis & Gilbert is one of only five “featured” firms.

“We are both proud of and excited by this recognition,” stated Ronald Urbach, the firm’s Chairman and Co-Chair of the Advertising practice group. “It validates Davis & Gilbert’s 106-year history of being strategically focused in a wide range of service sector industries, and above all, putting our clients first.”

The feature on Davis & Gilbert commended the firm’s “venerable” position in the field of advertising and marketing communications, including its current work on cutting-edge issues. In particular, it praised the firm's ability to "[keep] up with the trends by creating its own experts, who learn and refine new skills to stay abreast of emerging issues." Intellectual property litigation partner Marc Rachman confirmed the firm’s unmatched industry expertise, commenting that there isn’t a single advertising and marketing issue the firm hasn’t touched. In addition, Ron Urbach emphasized the firm’s unique structure and culture, as well as its holistic approach to client service.

Several of Davis & Gilbert’s recent litigation and transactional successes were highlighted in the article, including the firm’s work on various advertising, public relations, marketing and promotional campaigns in connection with the launch of the Chevrolet Volt, as well as the firm’s representation of Vevo, a music video and entertainment website, against patent infringement claims relating to a commonly-used website feature. The article also focused on the firm’s creative lawyering for its client Ecosentials, a beverage manufacturer, against trademark infringement claims over its packaging for a new product.

Davis & Gilbert’s recognition by The National Law Journal follows several other accolades the firm has garnered this year, including top-tier rankings for Advertising law in Chambers USA, Legal 500 and the U.S. News - Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” rankings.
