I thought I misread the LexBlog “New Blogs” post this morning when it said that Fox Rothschild just launched its twenty-sixth (that’s 26!!) blog this week. Holy crap!! Twenty-Six Blogs from a BigLaw Firm??? That is completely amazing. Not only that, but in my quick scan of the blogs, it seems that there is current content (no older than two or three weeks at most) on each of the blogs.
In an age where many firms are still struggling to come to grips with social media, it seems that Fox Rothschild has grabbed social media by the horns and is showing everyone else how to ride it. As Mark Silow, Fox Rothschild Administrative Partner, puts it:
“Clients depend on communication from counsel to keep track of the legal changes that affect their business. That’s why we speak with our clients on every level — including using innovative communications like Blogs.”
It is good to have trailblazers out there for the rest of the flock to follow. Keep up the great work!! One hint to the webmaster at FR, though… go ahead and link to the actual blog page… and skip the intermediate page that doesn’t have any content!! Here’s a list of all of the blogs:
