I recently posted on the seeming paucity of large law firm blogs. Several readers and bloggers have provided examples but I interpret the relatively few leads received as confirmation that there are indeed few firm-branded blogs.

Here then is the list – albeit a short one and not necessarily all-inclusive – of large law firms (NLJ 250) with firm-branded blogs:


Though not an NLJ 250 firm, I also found almost-100-lawyer firm Stark & Stark publishes New Jersey Law Blog. Richard DeLuca, the firm’s Director of Business Development, reports that “”we created the New Jersey Law Blog in response to a lackluster reception/readership to an email newsletter which we had been using. The external response to our blog has been great and has helped us as a firm focus our e-marketing initiatives.”

Also, at least one more large law firm has blogging plans. Tom Baldwin of Sheppard Mullin reports that his firm will soon launch antitrust and labor blogs. Tom also has a good blog post comparing blogs to newsletters.

Since it’s still January, I feel entitled to make a prediction: there will be significantly more large-firm-branded blogs in 2005.
