Note from the Associate Editor, Melissa Lin
Last week was a banner week for LexBlog; over 20 free member blogs joined our network and three new customer blogs launched on the LexBlog platform. This week’s update epitomizes “quality over quantity;” though we only have one new member joining us and and one existing blog redesign, we are proud to highlight them both. Our new member is a recognized expert on the delivery of legal services over the Internet, and established one of the first virtual law firms in the U.S. The blog redesign comes from a valued member firm in the LexBlog community that has continued to progress and grow through the years in both the work they publish and the image they exude. We think their fresh new look radiates the values of progress and simplicity harmoniously.
Please join us in welcoming Richard Grant to our network and congratulating DLA Piper’s blog on their redesign! And catch up on all the newest blogs in recent weeks here.
