NOV. 3, 2022 – For the second time in three years, the advertising practice group at Davis Wright Tremaine LLP has been honored as the leading team in the country.

In rankings released today, Best Lawyers and U.S. News named Davis Wright Tremaine "Law Firm of the Year" in advertising law, based on high ratings from the firm's clients and peers.

The team is led by Nancy Felsten and Rob Driscoll in New York, both of whom are also ranked by Chambers USA as among the top advertising law practitioners in the nation. Felsten is particularly known for her successful track record in disputes before the NAD (National Advertising Division) and NARB (National Advertising Review Board). Key players also include Kraig L. Marini Baker in Seattle and Brian Nixon, who joined the team as a partner in Washington, D.C., last year.

"Our extraordinary advertising group has steadily built its reputation for practical, responsive advice, and highly effective advocacy, for clients in all corners of the advertising and marketing ecosystem," said Alexandra Nicholson, chair of the media, entertainment, and intellectual property practice at Davis Wright. "The skills, insights, and industry knowledge this team has honed over decades are helping marketers deliver powerful results and push creative bounds, while successfully navigating the complex regulatory environment."

The bi-coastal advertising group at Davis Wright represents leading companies in a wide range of categories, including consumer products, technology, pharmaceuticals, financial services, automobiles, sports, and entertainment. They also advise most of the top media, news, and content companies, as well as advertising agencies and other marketing services providers.

Clients turn to the group for guidance on advertising production, claim substantiation, ad tech, privacy and data, media buying, and consumer protection, among other issues, and for support in the negotiation of complex transactions.

In the rankings released today, Best Lawyers and U.S. News also named Davis Wright as "Law Firm of the Year" in media law and awarded the firm a national Tier 1 ranking in 16 additional practice areas.
