As we at LexBlog wrap up a little early and head to midsummer barbecue on what feels like the 20th consecutive clear and sunny Seattle summer day, it’s time to once again look at who’s joining us on the LexBlog Network. This week, the total comes to four.

  • The Fox’s Litigation Strategy Blog is published by Los Angeles attorney Gerry Fox, who in his career has represented Clear Channel communications, James Gandolfini, M.C. Hammer, The Isley Brothers and many more high profile in nature. This blog will focus in on litigation management strategy itself as brings decades of experience—both in large law and out on his own—to bear in writing on mediation, cost/benefit analysis in litigation and when is the appropriate time to sue.
  • McDermott Will & Emery grows its network of online publications to eight with the launch of their Alcohol Law Advisor. The publication focuses closely on the inner-workings of the alcohol industry, as they aim to keep those working in it apprised of the latest developments from the FDA, the Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau and other regulatory bodies. They’ll also cover the laws with the distribution of alcohol—include import and export laws—as well.
  • For a long time, Mississippi lawyer Philip Thomas has penned the outstanding Mississippi Litigation Review & Commentary, and this week he’s added to that with the launch of his Mississippi Legal Malpractice Review. Thomas is always insightful and does well mixing in opinions with prominent news—something that’s not always easy to come by. Thomas has previously made the ABA Blawg 100 and he stands out as one of the very best bloggers on our network, so keep an eye on this publication.
  • Last, but certainly not least, one of the better blogging large law firms out there has launched another publication in the form of The BD/IA Regulator. This Morrison Foerster, in their own words, will cover “Developments in securities regulation, enforcement, and litigation are occurring at a rate that is difficult for a financial services provider to track.”
