Summer was no reason for Stem clients to slow down. Here’s a quick list of what they were up to in the month of August:
- In his second post about legal in-sourcing, McClanahan Myers Espey LLP attorney Randy McClanahan called for an end to the billable hour and encouraged companies to consider retaining outside counsel by contingency fee or other performance-based fee structures.
- New York personal injury lawyer John Hochfelder guest-blogged at Point of Law, covering a variety of topics such as golf ball injuries and wrongful death pain and suffering awards. While most law blog readers wouldn’t see John as a tort reform kinda guy, he seemed to fit in quite well. Walter Olson recognized him as ‘POL’s first plaintiff’s side guest blogger‘, along with a little recognition from fellow New York PI lawyer, Eric Turkewitz.
- And speaking of Mr. Hochfelder, his (critical) post about a skydiver’s parachute failing to open, and the woman suing her ‘life saving’ instructor was a viral marketing hit last week. Over a 48-hour period, the post logged more than 22,000 unique visitors!
- Clark Wilson LLP’s Corporate Finance and Securities Chair Bernard Pinsky wrote an article for Lawyers Weekly entitled “Raising capital across borders: Why we need an international agreement on securities regulation“.
- On his Nursing Homes Abuse Lawyer blog, Chicago elder law attorney Jonathan Rosenfeld wondered whether nursing home chains intentionally attempt to deceive the public about true corporate ownership.
- Product injury law firm Hissey Kientz LLP launched a new practice page for Fleet phospho-soda, as well as a new microsite, HerbalFenPhenLawyers.com.
- Phoenix criminal attorney Lawrence Koplow answered seven frequently-asked questions about Arizona search and asset seizure.
- West Palm Beach lawyer Ronald Chapman discussed a little-known law: that it is illegal for a person who has been convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence to possess a firearm.
- Themis Solutions, the makers of legal case management software Clio, described why they take a “less is more” approach to software design, usability, and purpose.
- Our only non-legal client, The Meadows Addiction Center launched a new FAQ website at AddictionandFamily.com.
- And finally, NJ criminal attorney John Marshall wrote a post describing an increase in identify theft and credit card fraud cases in New Jersey.
And, we’ll be back next month with more client news to share.
