Can you believe it? 2012 is just hours from over! The Clawbies went live earlier today, and this roundup wraps up the last of our December commitments. Here’s our final look of the year at client happenings:
- Just days before the end of the year, Stem was pleased to announce one more website redesign, as Russell Alexander relaunched their new site on December 28th!
- The winter 2012 issue of the Canadian Corporate Counsel Association magazine features a Q&A with former Competition Bureau Commissioner Melanie Aitken and a spotlight on CCCA‘s 25th anniversary.
- Cloud-based practice management software Clio got top marks from TechnoLawyer. Not surprising; 2012 was a great year for Clio, which over the last 12 months rolled out a host of new features including Document Automation, the Clio Platform, Flexible Billing Rates, Time Rounding and Offline Time Tracking , “Scan to Clio” with Fujitsu Scanners, Google Drive integration, new Referral Program and Custom Fields that integrates with their Document Automation feature.
- Clio’s Small Firm Innovation blog had a couple of standout posts: Google+ Communities, Salesforce and Zoho: CRMs and Your Law Firm, Reflecting on 2012 Gals and Ask Yourself Two Questions. Clio thanks all those who voted for SFI in the ABA Journal Blawg 100 Business of Law category, and is looking for post contributions on January’s theme: fitness, personal health and how to fit it into a busy lawyer’s schedule (send submissions to Gwynne Monahan).
- BC legal support services provider Dye & Durham was pleased that David Bilinsky and Erik Magraken both nominated their BC Law Watch blog in the 2012 Clawbies awards.
- Thorsteinssons continues to publish on their tax blog. Efforts from authors such as Thomas McDonnell have made this publication well worth tracking.
- After practicing law for almost 40 years, Pushor Mitchell has announced the retirement of one of their founding partners, Rick Pushor. Rick was a big part of both the firm’s culture and his community.
- Harrison Pensa celebrated the holiday season with another fun offering to their clients; coupled nicely with raising more than $8000 to buy holiday turkeys at the firm’s annual Turkey Bowl.
- Daniel Sorensen at Waterstone Law Group wrote about whether giving two-weeks notice when resigning a position in BC is considered “adequate notice” under provincial law.
- Koplow Law Firm moved its principal office location to the Chase Bank Tower in downtown Phoenix, Arizona. The new address was updated across all the firm’s online properties.
- Hissey Kientz firm publishing was strong again this month, with new pages for Granuflo, and Actos; along with pieces on Zoloft and abdominal birth defects, and TVM organ perforation.
On behalf of everyone at Stem, Happy New Year and all the very best in 2013!
