Best Blogs of January: Big Four Going Legal, LinkedIn Tips, No Boring Lawyers

This is my 38th post in a series of monthly features that I have dubbed “Best of My Blog Roll.” The concept is simple – at the end of a month I peruse my own blog roll (see that column on the right) for material created by other bloggers that I think is most worthy of sharing with others, and then I report on it here.

Reviewing blog posts for the month of January 2016, I have chosen to highlight the following :

  1. A post on Adam Smith, Esq. addressing the growing encroachment of Big Four accounting firms on to legal turf. This is a phenomenon that law firms need a strategy to deal with as the Big Four already have much stronger ties with the CEOs and CFOs of large U.S. companies, and in most cases CLOs report to either the CEO or the CFO. The post cites a number of data points that demonstrate the size of the Big Four’s power and five-year projections.
  2. A post by Stephen Fairley on the Rainmaker Blog that gives a great step-by-step graphic on how to create a LinkedIn profile that will result in more page views and more inbound contact.
  3. A post by Cordell Parvin on the observation that “Clients Do Not Want Boring Lawyers.”

If you see a great post or a great blog about legal services, law practice or legal marketing that you would like to call attention to, send along your comments.
