In addition to Burr & Forman’s upcoming insurance blog, Goodman reports on an upcoming blog from LexBlog client Bradley Arant, whose Jackson, Mississippi office already publishes the Mississippi Law Blog.
Burr & Forman’s Gary Howard, who already reads a couple business blogs, understands the value of blogs in reaching sophisticated clients.
