Blog to assist in-house counsel

The attorneys of Clark Hill PLC have launched a new blog offering information and resources for in-house counsel.

Located at and updated regularly, the blog includes legal updates, surveys on popular topics, vital links, law department management advice, best-practice tips, free access to upcoming events and archived presentations, and “best-in-show” sample forms and documents, among other resources.
Early blog entries address a range of topics, including:

• retaining in-house talent in an economic upswing

• the five employment policies in-house attorneys should update immediately

• questions about the role of  the phrase “I’m Sorry” in litigation

• the recent U.S. Supreme Court denial of an extension of FOIA personal protections to corporations

• the U.K. Anti-Bribery Act and how it may influence the FCPA and your company.

While all Clark Hill attorneys may contribute to the blog, the team managing the blog includes Labor & Employment Law Practice Group Co-Chair Daniel J. Bretz, Member David M. Cessante, Associate Lauren R. Coatney, Associate Sean P. Gallagher, Associate Kristen Polanski, Associate James Waggoner, Member Linda M. Watson and Associate Anne-Marie V. Welch.

Content will also feature insight from guest contributors, including legal management consultant Altman Weil.

“In-house counselors face a set of challenges all their own,” Watson said. “Through our In-House Café Blog, we’re allowing access to the collective knowledge of Clark Hill colleagues and guest contributors, to provide information and resources to help in-house attorneys meet those challenges.”

Watson said the blog “is easy to navigate, its free and it offers a series of ‘quick-read’ items that can be consumed with a morning cup of coffee or at any time when it’s most convenient for in-house attorneys.”
