s we close the week out with a bright and sunny afternoon in Seattle (is it really summer this time?), let’s look back again at the publications joining the LexBlog Network this week. The total count comes to five, with Fox Rothschild accounting for three all by themselves. Also, one of the Network’s best international publications gets revamped. Enjoy the weekend everyone.
- Employee Benefits Law Report is the sixth publication on the LexBlog Network from Porter Wright Morris & Arthur. Touching on topics that include ERISA, health care reform, retirement plans and executive compensation, this blog will build upon the excellent work they’ve already done with their long-running Employer Law Report.
- The Cozen O’Connor network of publications also grows by one this week as the ABCs of Immigration is the firm’s eighth publication on the LexBlog Network. Marcy Stras, head of the firm’s International Trade and Business Immigration practice serves as editor on this publication focusing on the interests and the challenges faced by those individuals and business impacted by immigration laws.
- The first blog in the Fox Rothschild hat trick on the week is the Berks County Law Update. With Exton, PA attorney John J. Miravich serving as editor, this blog aims to cover recent legal developments and civic issues in the Berks County, PA community. Topics covered thus far include insurance, land use planning, tax matters and litigation.
- And second from Fox Rothschild, we have the Delaware Court of Chancery Practice Blog. As the title suggests, this blog is very focused, with Wilmington lawyers Sheldon K. Rennie and Carl D. Neff manning the publication. Not only do these two attorneys offer their input via case summaries, insight on summary proceedings, the local counsel and other subjects—they also add in their own ‘pratice pointers’ as well.
- Last but not least, the third Fox Rothschild publication to launch this week is the New Jersey Litigation Law Blog. Princeton attorney Jack Kolpen serves as editor on this, another locale-centric publication from the AmLaw 200 firm. The blog aims to cover a wide variety of litigation affecting Garden State businesses, whether that be associated with the False Claims Act or the Consumer Fraud Act, or based more in environmental law or construction liens law, you can find all that and a lot more here.
Also worth noting: Santiago Cueto‘s phenomenal International Business Law Advisor blog gets a sharp new look this week. While the publication is a exceptional resource for its subject matter—international litigation and transactions—it also serves as a strong point of reference for others trying to learn how to blog well. Cueto, who has been featured in a number of mainstream media outlets and represented Fortune 100 companies and foreign governments in a variety of complex commercial litigation and transactions matters, is simply one of the best international law bloggers out there.
