Ideas for this blog come from everywhere, but some sources turn up thoughts much more commonly than other do (See my post of Nov. 13, 2007: publications I cite regularly.). One of my troves is the series from K&L Gates (formerly Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Nicholson Graham) where they publish relatively short observations from various general counsel. The firm calls its series top of mind.
Ten times I have drawn on points made in the series (See my post of Dec. 21, 2005: culture at Phillips; Dec. 6, 2007: contracts and offshore services at Sapient; Jan. 30, 2006: methodology comments; Dec. 17, 2006: ADVO and its solo general counsel; Jan. 30, 2006: attributes of outside counsel selection; Dec. 17, 2006: micro-managing outside counsel; Dec. 17, 2006: Radio One and “majors”; Dec. 17, 2006: Affiliated Computer and contractual flexibility; Dec. 21, 2005: Ascential Software and “majors”; and Dec. 21, 2005: cultivating regulators.).
