Summer is usually a slow(er) time for the legal industry. But Stem’s clients continue to be busy with all sorts of great endeavours. Here’s our monthly peek into some of our Stem clients news:
- Adrian Lurrsen (if you’re on Twitter, he’s a gem to watch @JDTwitt ) has been blogging up a storm over at JD Scoop – the companion blog for free legal document sharing site JD Supra. Post topics included the top searches for July, JD Supra’s new email digests offering, and a practical example of driving profile with content. He even had time to join me today in the 5 blogs meme. JD Supra founder Aviva Cuyler also chimed in with her welcome of the latest contributors.
- West Palm Beach attorney Ron Chapman, who specializes in defending both Florida State and Federal Crimes, recently wrote a pair of helpful FAQ-style posts on sealing criminal records in Florida ( Part 1, Part 2). The FAQs deal with out-of-state criminal records, sealed vs. expunged criminal records, eligibility, and pardons, among other related topics.
- The Technology & IP group at Canadian law firm Clark Wilson LLP were among the first to publish considered and in-depth commentary on Bill C-61, the copyright reform bill introduced in June 2008. You can read all about that plus other IP news in the August edition of the group’s newsletter, Knowledge Bytes. Clark Wilson is also excited to be a Silver Partner in sponsorship of the 2008 Women’s Leadership Forum in its inaugural Vancouver event, “Shine: Radiate your Leadership”.
- As we hinted at in our last roundup, the lawyers of McClanahan Myers Espey LLP are now blogging! The Contingent Fee Business Litgation blog features discussion on topics such as corporate-owned life insurance (dead peasant) policies, patents disputes, and contingent fee litigation. Intrigued? Check out Mike Myers’ recent post, “How ‘Dead Peasant’ Insurance Got Its Name”.
- Stem’s newest client, Houston-based product injury firm Hissey Kientz LLP, has published a news section on their website dedicated to tracking the Digitek recall and related lawsuits.
- Lawrence Koplow, a Phoenix DUI attorney with Koplow Patane PLLC, has been working on spreading the word about the DUI Lawyer Blog Watch. His efforts are paying off: we’ve added a couple new DUI/DWI blogs to the mix since its inception in late July 2008. Keep those blog submissions coming—the more the merrier!
Great work, everyone! We’re working at getting this kind of news roundup onto a monthly schedule. So with any luck, you can expect to hear more of our clients’ projects and achievements next month!
