Welcome to the Blawgosphere: 'Tablet Legal' and 'Legal Crisis Strategies'
I learned about two new legal blogs this week that look promising:
Tablet Legal: On Wednesday, Jan. 27, Apple launched its new iPad. Just three days later, Portland, Oregon, business attorney Josh Barrett followed by launching Tablet Legal. The site, he wrote, will "discuss lawyers using the iPad, applications for the iPad and other developments specific to the iPad in the legal profession. In the next few months until the iPad is released, I’ll discuss how existing legal apps might change for the iPad platform and what new apps may develop." Already, Barrett has written about topics such as "Bar Review on your iPad: BarMax" and "iPad and Storytelling for Lawyers" (at trial, in client pitches, and so on). Good stuff.
Legal Crisis Strategies: Via a post on Bob Ambrogi's LawSites, I learned of this intriguing new blog that launched earlier this week. LCS is written by a group of lawyers from McDermott Will & Emery’s Legal Crisis Management group and will provide "advice on preventing, managing and ending a crisis while protecting a company’s reputation and limiting its legal liability." Its first post, entitled "The Dreaded Phone Call...", addresses the following interesting scenario:
You are the General Counsel of a major corporation about to go to your son’s soccer game. It’s five to five and the phone rings: The New York Times is about to go with a story about your secret merger negotiations, that also involve sensitive talks with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Your stomach clenches. It’s a full blown crisis….and it’s bad…or is it?
I'll be following both of these blogs going forward. Welcome to the blawgosphere!
