Directors Monica Riva Talley and Tracy-Gene G. Durkin returned to the individual rankings for the twelfth and tenth straight years, respectively, in the category of “prosecution and strategy.” Talley was noted for being “at the forefront of all things high tech and cutting edge for more than 25 years” as well as for her “robust practice in the entertainment space.” WTR remarked that Durkin’s trademark practice is “robust, and she is especially noted for her comprehensive knowledge of 3D product design.”
