In Mark’s Farewell Post he announced that he is leaving Jones Day after 20 years to become the VP and Chief Counsel – Litigation at Aon Corporation. Fellow co-author, James Beck, has this to say (Long Live the Blog) about Mark’s departure. He also announces 3 new lawyers joining the blogging team to replace Mark. Wow! 3 lawyers to replace 1. What a complement.
Although not much of my practice focuses on drug and device work, I have been a periodic reader since the early years of blogging. Why? Because I’ve always loved the tone of their posts – informal, practical and lighthearted. Great to see Beck link to a post that I remember reading (and liking) about why big firms don’t blog well. Great advice for any law blogger.
Thanks to the Likelihood of Confusion post that tipped me on Mark’s departure.
