ALM announced on March 6, 2008 that it acquired Altman Weil Publications. 

“ALM, a leading media company serving legal and business professionals, today announced the acquisition of Altman Weil Publications, Inc. of Newtown Square, Penn. The group publishes surveys on the legal profession focusing primarily on the economics and management of law firms. Founded in 1974, Altman Weil Publications is a former division of Altman Weil, Inc., which provides management consulting services to law firms, law departments and legal vendors…” reports the ALM press release. ALM, publisher of and American Lawyers, became part of Incisive Media not long ago.

ALM already has a strong research arm and publishes numerous surveys and reports. So it seems like an excellent fit. I wonder what this means , if anything, for Altman Weil’s consulting practice.
