This past week I had the opportunity to speak on content marketing and social media as a way to help bankruptcy lawyers grow their law practice.  It was a great opportunity to meet some great people and to hear what challenges people were facing in marketing their law practice.  I had a few surprises, including how many attorneys attending the conference didn’t even have a website let alone a blog and further how many people were outright hostile to getting involved in social media… [read post]

Stephen Fairley (@stephenfairley) , CEO of the Rainmaker Institute, shared earlier this week that “The goal of social media is to engage with individuals in meaningful ways and drive them off the social media platform to your website or blog.” I’m sure Fairley’s intentions were well placed and he’s not saying to sell on social media, but I couldn’t help but think of someone I’m in a conversation with at a networking event saying “Psst, over here. Look… [read post]

The last two weeks has been an eye opener for knowledgeable tourists thinking of traveling to Roatan. A cruise line employee was gunned down near the port. The bloody death was widely reported in the local newspapers which published gruesome photographs of the dead crew member. As a result, a major cruise line temporarily pulled out of Roatan. A major excursion company also canceled all tours of the island expressing concerns for the safety of cruise passengers. The story revealed some… [read post]

We created this infographic for some of our media clients to give them a one-page cheat sheet on the analysis they need to do when trying to decide whether they can use an image from the internet in a pinch. The infographic includes all the caveats because rarely can a legal issue be discerned down to one page with so few words.  In fact, I wrote a three-part series on this very topic last year.   To view this as a pdf, click Use of Images InfoGraphic.   [read post]

Today’s featured patent application would protect a novel system of addressing power outages when a utility network doesn’t receive notification of the event directly from customers. This system allows a utility network to scan social media posts for relevant information about outages, and then turn those posts into instructions for maintenance crews. We also discuss a few inventions related to wind turbines, including a new method for measuring lightning strike damage on wind turbine… [read post]

Earlier this week I published a post on this site about the employment practices liability exposures that the social media may present for employers. After seeing my post, D&O maven Dan Bailey of the Bailey Cavalieri law firm send me a note pointing out that the social media also present D&O liability exposures for companies and their directors and officers as well.

Since the last time I published a list of labor & employment law lawyers to follow back in 2012, there are just a bunch of you out there now using Twitter. (And I presume you’re already following me @danielschwartz, right?) So, it’s probably time to update my list of labor & employment law-related people to follow on Twitter. But I’m going to cheat, a little. Photo Courtesy Library of Congress Frankly, in looking over my lists from 2009 and 2012, I have a lot of… [read post]

I recently received an inquiry from the marketing director at a law firm who asked, Can you guide me on something regarding settlement confidentiality agreements and social media? I am assuming that if I use social media to talk about a settlement without mentioning names, I am OK. True? No, not necessarily true -- particularly where there is a confidentiality agreement in place! The marketing director gave me two examples of proposed posts, similar to the ones below:  Just settled… [read post]
