The National Law Journal has named Jones Day partner Christopher M. Morrison to the inaugural list of 2019 Sports & Entertainment Trailblazers. Through the various Trailblazers special supplements, the NLJ recognizes movers and shakers in the legal industry who have made an impact in their sector through new types of strategies or innovative court cases.

Mr. Morrison's practice sits at the intersection of litigation and intellectual property rights, and clients have turned to him for his ability to translate complex issues into terms that are more easily understood by fact finders and judges at all stages of litigation. His role in winning a defense verdict for the Boston Red Sox in the first-ever jury trial in Massachusetts for a foul ball injury confirmed that ballpark owners are not responsible for every accident that occurs in their stadiums—and set him apart as a Trailblazer in the sports legal industry.
