"There is no one in the Advertising Law practice as skilled, as knowledgeable, nor as great to work with as Ron. I can't imagine our agency functioning without him."

-Jerry Barnhart
Goodby Silverstein & Partners

"Ron is one of the leading experts in this area and always provides insightful and practical guidance. He is a pleasure to work with!"

-Mark Seidenfeld

"It's easy for an advertising lawyer to point out all the obstacles that a client would encounter as they try to achieve a particular objective. It's much harder for that lawyer to find creative ways to help his clients actually maneuver safely around those obstacles and achieve the objective. Ron Urbach is the master of the latter approach, and I cannot recommend him highly enough."

-Harold Sogard
Goodby Silverstein & Partners

"Ron is one of the top advisors in the Advertising Agency space. We look to him for both creative clearance matters as well as contract law matters between us, clients, and suppliers. He approaches issues from both a legal perspective and a business relationship perspective. He understands our business and filters his commentary in that context."

-Jerry Barnhart
Goodby Silverstein & Partners

"Ron is probably the best attorney in the field today. His advice and counsel is invaluable and he is well respected and known by all of our clients. He is very helpful in dealing with complex issues and has a very practical business approach to solving problems."
