There have been a few law firms out there that have taken a slow approach to Twitter, but I ran across one today that has taken Twitter straight to its homepage and says “Follow Me!!”

Jackson Walker, a 300+ Texas-based law firm has created a number of Twitter accounts based on the type of law that someone may want to follow. Here is what they have so far:

Jackson Walker(News about the firm)

JW Law(Legal updates in all categories)

Entertainment Law


Financial Recovery Solutions

First Amendment

Health Care Law


Intellectual Property Law

Labor and Employment Law

Litigation Alerts

Media Law

Real Estate Law

Tax Law

I have to say that I’m impressed with JW taking the Twitter bull by the horns (or would it be the Twitter dove by the tail feathers??).
I’ve run across a couple other firms that have Twitter accounts, such as @fulbright@weilgotshal, and @WCSRtwit but none have made the leap like Jackson Walker. It will be interesting following this to see if JW finds this to be a way to bring in new business.  (Here is a growing list of big law attys on Twitter – thanks to @SecuritiesD.)
