List of Large Law Firm's "Officially Sanctioned Blogs"

There are a number of large law firms that have officially sanctioned blogs, and we've compiled a list of those that we could find. Out of the National Law Journal 250, we found 136 141 blogs from 53 56 firms.

Now, let me explain what we mean by "officially sanctioned blog." We are stretching this phrase to mean that the blog was mentioned somewhere on the firm's website. Some of the blogs are featured jewels of the firm, and are proudly displayed. Others, are hidden so deeply, that you might think that the firm tolerates some of their attorneys having personal blogs. We'll follow up with some additional blog postings to break out the firms that are blog-proud vs. blog-tolerant. [click here to see Blog-Proud v. Blog-Tolerent Firms]

NOTE: We looked at each of the firms' websites to see if they listed any blogs in their publications or other obvious places.  We'd also use the search function to see if we could find any blogs listed by the firm.  If we missed some blogs, please let us know.
NOTE 2:  Kevin O'Keefe just put out an AmLaw 200 blog list that is great.

Here's one more from Porter Wright:

Tom Gorman's SEC Actions blog.


Bruce Carton said...

And another from Jack Gravelle of Porter Wright:


No, I don't work for Porter Wright! I just follow the securities blog world.

Bruce Carton said...

One from Baker Hosteler:

"Class Action Blawg"

Greg Lambert said...

Thanks Bruce. I added these three blogs. That now brings the list up to 139 blogs from 54 firms.

Baker & Daniels also has a second blog run through B&D Consulting. It is Climate News Live, http://www.climatenewslive.com

Greg Lambert said...

Thanks for letting me know! I've added the Baker & Daniels "B&D Consulting" Climate News Live.

Pretty absurd that you don't even include the most prominent law firm sponsored blog out there - SCOTUSBlog.

Akin also has ClimateIntel.com.

Laura Walters said...

And from the West Coast - Foster Pepper's new Native American Legal Blog:

Greg Lambert said...

Alright.... It is a little absurd that I missed Akin's ClimateIntel blog, but I'm conflicted on adding SCOTUS because it is was buried so deep on two attorney's bio's. I'll add it, but I'll have to say it is more absurd that it isn't prominently displayed on the firm's website.

The first blog from a Fox Rothschild lawyer was (and remains) Delaware Corporate and Commercial Litigation Blog at www.delawarelitigation.com (also listed on Kevin O'Keefe's list of the AmLaw 200 blogs.)

Greg Lambert said...

Interesting. If you look at Fox Rothchild's web page listing all of its blogs, they do not list Pileggi's Delaware Corporate and Commercial Litigation Blog anywhere on the list.

I'm glad that Kevin O'Keefe is listing all the blogs that he knows are listed to big firms, but my list is focusing on the blogs that the firms are actually listing on their own website.

Check out this blog from Bill Fenwick, founder of Fenwick & West:

Hi, Greg-

Akin Gump also runs two other blogs: Washington Labor & Employment Wire (washlaborwire.com) and The Financial Markets Crisis Resource Center (ag-marketcrisis.com).

Leslie Larson said...

Here's a unique one from Foster Pepper PLLC covering Native American law and culture:

The New Media, Entertainment and Technology group at Hughes Hubabrd publicly launched www.digitalhhr.com last week.

Thanks for posting the list. My firm's management was hesitant at first to showcase any blog, but I think they are coming around to the marketing possibilities. Having started ClassActionBlawg as a personal blog, however, I've grown to appreciate the benefits of not having something directly tied to my firm. I still have a fairly strict set of guidelines that I follow to avoid ethical or political issues with the firm and its clients, including not commenting on cases involving any firm clients without prior approval.

Check out Ford & Harrison's blog called, "That's What She Said," which puts a litigation value on each episode of NBC's The Office. The blog has gotten a ton of press coverage and numerous awards and is very highly trafficked on Fridays. However, it is hosted by an independent publisher at: http://employmentlawpost.com/thatswhatshesaid/

Holland & Hart also has a blog dedicated to NASD, SEC and Regulatory Defense at http://securities.blogs.com/hh/ .
