Timothy John H. Delaney has joined Ballard Spahr at its Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer at the firm’s office in Philadelphia. Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Delaney served in a similar capacity at WilmerHale for nearly 10 years, and has earlier career experience establishing and directing global business development functions at another major law firm.

In addition to overseeing business development and marketing efforts, he will manage other communications functions including strategic planning, PR and media relations, market intelligence, and professional development.

“The platform is a very interesting one, and the culture is a great fit,” he said of his new firm. “It’s very intellectual, very, very collegial, and they’re all nice people.”

Stephen J. Kastenberg, a partner in the Litigation Department who led the nationwide search, said “He is well regarded, has worked directly with both clients and attorneys, and has a track record of success in business development. This is a very good fit.”
