Karen Ballack Named Among 50 Women Leaders in Tech Law by The Recorder in 2013

— The Recorder 2013

Weil Technology & IP Transactions partner Karen Ballack has been recognized among The Recorder’s 50 Women Leaders in Technology Law. The awards honor attorneys who have demonstrated leadership and expertise in solving critical legal concerns facing technology companies. According to The Recorder’s editor in chief, Greg Mitchell, “[t]hese are the lawyers who get the call for that first, crucial funding round, the patent dispute only scientists can understand, the licensing-as-lifeline deal, the long-sought liquidity event.”

Over the past year, Ms. Ballack has led the Weil teams advising Yahoo! Inc. on the IP and technology aspects of some of the company’s most important transactions, including its $1.1 billion acquisition of popular blogging site Tumblr and its acquisition of Summly, a mobile news aggregator.

The winners will be honored at a reception on September 25, 2013.
