June 13, 2024

Intellectual Property Department Chair Lynn E. Rzonca and Trademarks and Copyrights Practice Leader Hara K. Jacobs have been recognized as Global Leaders: Private Practice in the 2024 edition of the WTR 1000.

Ms. Rzonca, who has over three decades of experience litigating trademark, advertising, copyright, and patent cases, counsels clients on how to best protect and increase the value of their intellectual property and safeguard their key brands.

Ms. Jacobs has more than 25 years of experience representing clients in all phases of trademark, trade dress, false advertising, copyright, trade secret, and right of publicity litigation, from initial counseling through trial and appeal. She advises clients on the implementation and development of global branding and enforcement strategies and regularly appears in federal and state courts and before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board.

The attorneys of Ballard Spahr’s Trademarks and Copyrights Practice are trusted by clients across industries to develop and protect these valuable assets—online and everywhere else—through portfolio development, maintenance and enforcement, acquisitions, licensing, dispute counseling, and litigation. They provide comprehensive, strategic brand counseling and analysis—from due diligence, mark selection, and registration to clearance, policing, and enforcement—and understand how new technologies affect brand strategies, including social media, contextual advertising, and affiliate network advertising.

The WTR 1000 identifies the leading professionals and firms that are deemed outstanding at obtaining, protecting, managing, enforcing, and monetizing trademarks. To compile its list, World Trademark Review spent four months conducting in-person and telephone interviews and corresponded with hundreds of lawyers and their clients involved with trademarks.
