Leading Advertising Attorney Ron Urbach Launches Industry Blog, Madison Ave Insights

New York, September 27, 2012 – Since its inception, the world of advertising has been cloaked in magic: the industry is driven by creativity, business and innovation; is extremely fast-paced; and is often portrayed with a hint of glamour. Outsiders are eager to know more, and insiders thrive on industry buzz and constant change.

Ron Urbach’s advertising industry blog, Madison Ave InsightsSM (www.madisonaveinsights.com), will peel back the curtains on Madison Avenue – the street that has long been synonymous with the world of advertising – and give readers a firsthand look into the fast-paced world of the industry.

Ron, Chairman of the preeminent advertising law firm Davis & Gilbert, will take to the blog to share his unique viewpoint on the latest hot topics in the industry facing agencies and advertisers, including mega-trends, challenges, developments and the advertising. The blog will feature Ron’s candid interviews with highly-regarded industry leaders who are at the epicenter of these very issues, shaping the future of advertising.

“I’ve had a ‘behind the scenes’ look at Madison Ave my entire professional career, so I see things though a very different prism, which I know readers will enjoy,” says Urbach. “I am thrilled to share perspectives from advertising executives, marketers and influencers who have long been a part of the advertising industry, and hope the Madison Ave Insights blog will soon become one of the hot topics the industry is talking about.”

In addition to discussing the latest hot button issues on a regular basis, Ron will give readers an exclusive look at the Oscar’s of the advertising world: Advertising Week 2012. Beginning October 1, Ron will attend a variety of sessions at this premier event – and will be leading a program featuring a candid conversation with Commissioner of the Federal Trade Commission, Julie Brill – and will share his experiences on the blog.
