To be ranked, the firms and individuals must be “deemed outstanding in a critical area of practice.” Over a four-month period, the WTR 1000 conducts interviews and exchanges correspondence with hundreds of attorneys and their clients, as well as gathering submissions from firms detailing activity in the field.

    “Highly active within INTA and busy in her practice on both transactional and litigation fronts, Jeanne Hamburg of Norris McLaughlin is at the cutting edge of trademark and copyright law as it relates to the Internet,” the WTR 1000 wrote about Hamburg.
