Having been out last week, we’ve got some catching up to do in introducing you to some new publications on our network. Since our last post updating you on growth in the network, we have ten new blogs joining our ranks. Have a look.

  • Having worked with a number of the talented professionals at this firm in previous roles, we’re excited to Bradley Arant Boult Cummings join the LexBlog Network in the form of Labor & Employment Insights. This should be a fine addition to the constantly expanding employment law blogosphere as they’re already off to a great start with insightful and approachable commentary.
  • The Policyholder Report is one of two publications from Portland, DC and Orlando law firm Ball Janik to join the LexBlog Network—their first with us—as they really dive right in. The authors here represent insureds in insurance recovery, claims and disputes with their insurers, and bring that expertise to bear in offering up commentary on the ins and outs of the insurance world. 
  • Construction Law Watch is the second of two Ball Janik blogs to join us on the LexBlog Network. They put an extensive team of authors to use as they write on topics that include construction contracts, construction defects, green building, insurance and a lot more.
  • The third of the many new blogs joining us from firms just getting started on the LexBlog Network is on an interesting subject, it’s The Law for Lawyers Today from Thompson Hine. Again, it really is an interesting subject, and I’ll let them take it away in describing it: “The Law for Lawyers Today is a resource for law firms, law departments and lawyers needing information to meet the challenge of practicing ethically and responsibly.”
  • It’s good to see a lawyer at a large law firm take the reins of a publication and really run with it, and that’s what we see with Bridging the Week from Katten attorney Gary DeWaal. The blog “discusses the top financial and regulatory news of the prior week in a concise, interesting and meaningful way,” combining insightful written posts with videos from Gary.
  • This batch has another blog in the construction arena in the form of the RFI Blog from Texas law firm Sanderford & Carroll, as this site aims to keep Texas construction professionals and government contractors abreast of the latest developments. Temple attorney Calvin Cowan serves as the blog’s primary author.
  • Now if you’re looking for more insight for government contractors, we have that in the form of The Procurement Playbook from Oles Morrison, as this is their first on The LexBlog Network.  The team at Oles Morrison prides themselves on being one of the premier government contract practice groups in the country, and they bring that to bear in writing on bid protests, LEED certification, relevant legislation and the False Claims Act.
  •  With the large and prestigious law firms on the LexBlog Network, some of the publications are bound to have quite the scope, looking not just at things in the States, but globally—and that’s just what we have in the IP Law Watch from K&L Gates, and the team out of Australia running it. They aim to cover prominent developments with patents, trademarks and more, all while offering an international perspective.
  • Walking you through something of a complex subject, we have the EB-5 Financing Matters blog from Mintz Levin, which covers the American government’s EB-5 Immigrant Investor Program. For those who don’t know, this program created by Congress in 1990 to stimulate the U.S. economy through job creation and capital investment by foreign investors. Already off to a strong start, this blog explains all of the program’s nuances.
  • Like I mentioned up above, the large law firms we work with like to offer up a global perspective, and that continues with Doing Business in Africa from Greenberg Traurig. We’ve been seeing more blogs focused on Africa as of late, and this continues as the lawyers at GT hone in speciifcally on Africa’s impact on foreign investment.
