BigLaw 100 Jobs Updated!

I’ve updated the BigLaw 100 jobs for October.  You can download it here.

Based on your feedback, it seems that the attorney job listings are the most useful. In order to update the lists more frequently — BigLaw 200 Jobs will be available next week! – I decided to limit the focus to attorney jobs.

In addition, next week, I’m introducing a new list that will include only in-house jobs.

Right now, the plan is to include 50 in-house opportunities and update it every other week.  What do you think?  Would you be interested in something like that?

Let me know in the comments or in an e-mail!

BigLaw 200 Jobs Updated for September!

In case you missed yesterday’s tweet, I’ve updated the BigLaw 200 Job Listings for September.

For less than $5, the list includes:

190+ attorney positions including lateral partner, lateral associate, staff attorney, temp or contract attorney, and one or two entry-level openings.

45+ paralegal and/or patent agent positions.

35+ administrative positions at the law firms, i.e., conflicts, business development, practice support, professional development, e-discovery

In response to your feedback…

I’ve created separate sheets for each type of position for easier navigation. [Note: In the picture, I opened the file in Google docs but the bottom of the page should look similar in Excel or Numbers.]

I’ve also made it easy to filter by city, state, and firm, if you click on these headers. You can also filter by practice type and years of experience columns… but, proceed with caution!  These columns are still works in progress.

What do you think?  Is endeavor “tell a friend” worthy?

I know looking at job boards is a pain but is it a pain worth solving for $4? Tell me your thoughts!

[Jobs] Round-Up of Am Law 100 Lateral Positions

Since the last round-up, there are 29 new jobs posted! These include a few coveted “alternative” arrangements such as an hourly position at Hunton & Williams in Austin and a practice support attorney opening at Reed Smith’s offices in Pittsburgh.

My guess for 2010? You’ll see a lot more of these positions. They are smart for firms, smart for clients, and smart for employees.

Note: To keep track of the changes, I’ve highlighted the new positions in green (money, baby, money!). If a firm removed one (1) position or more, I’ve highlighted the name of the firm in red.

Still looking for feedback. Also, still considering whether to make these updates solely available for newsletter subscribers (hey, it’s a lot of work! plus, my newsletters are fun and informative!). Thoughts in the comments, please!

If you’d like to sort by city or practice area, you may view it as a Google document. Under view, change the preference to list view.

(blog)

Official blogs – I went back and forth deciding whether DLA Piper Technology Leaders Summit Blog should count as an official firm blog, especially because it was last published over six months ago (October 2008).  I decided to give it to DLA Piper.  Why?  Well, the firm’s logo is proudly positioned on the blog and it’s a forward-thinking use of blogging technology.  Actually, for that, DLA Piper deserves an extra point.  (+2)

DLA Piper created this blog for its technology summit that occurred in October 2008 (further details).

Twitter – We found a DLA Piper Twitter account that has not been updated.  We’re not even sure if DLA Piper owns the account.  (+0)

[January 24, 2010 UPDATE:  Now there are many DLA Twitter accounts, e.g., this one, but they did not exist when we calculated DLA's score.  To see an ongoing list of DLA Piper's Twitter accounts, please refer to our Am Law Tweeple post.]

Official podcasts – DLA Piper does have a few podcasts available for download.  Most recently, this 2009 seminar is available for download here. (+2!!!)

Official webinars – The firm does host webinars (e.g. this ediscovery webinar from April 2009 entitled, “Designing, Implementing, Maintaining and Releasing Litigation Holds” (whitepaper also available for download)). (+2!!!!)

These are found by searching for the word “webinar” in the event section of the firm’s website.  (They are sorta hard to find but I was so proud of the topics, I decided to give the firm 2 points!)

(blog)

Official blogs – We could not find any official Dechert blogs or Twitter accounts.

Nevertheless, Jim Beck, Counsel in Dechert’s Appellate Practice, Mass Torts and Product Liability Litigation group, co-authors an unofficial blog entitled "Drug and Device Law" with colleague Mark Herrmann, a partner in a similar practice group at Jones Day. In addition, Jim and Mark maintain a Twitter account that complements their blog. (+0.5 – for Jim and Mark’s efforts)

Jim’s bio on Dechert’s site speaks favorably about Jim and Mark’s efforts and successes with the blog¹, however, the Drug and Device Law’s disclaimer page is explicit that the blog only represents the personal views of the authors and not of their respective firms.

(podcast)

Official podcasts – n/a

Official webinars – We could not find any webinars hosted or sponsored by Dechert.

How Dechert Interacts With the Web:

(creation)

-  Though it’s not an official Dechert blog, Drug and Device Law is created with BlogSpot, Google’s free blogging service. (+0.5 – for Jim and Mark’s efforts)

(interpretation)

- Drug and Device Law may track site visits through the Blogspot’s stat programs.  It also uses external sources such as google analytics. In addition, the blog does use feedburner to track feed subscriptions.  (+0.5 – for Jim and Mark’s efforts)

(domain/hosting)

- Drug and Device Law uses Blogspot as its domain and for its hosting.  Its url makes no mention of Dechert or Jones Day.  (+0.5 – for Jim and Mark’s efforts)

BigLaw Tech Score: 12 points

¹"Since late 2006, Mr. Beck has been the co-host of The Drug and Device Law Blog [http://druganddevicelaw.blogspot.com], now ranked as the most widely-read product liability blog on the Internet by Justia Blawg Search. This blog concentrates on legal issues encountered in the defense of prescription drug and medical device product liability litigation, especially preemption. At the May 2007 annual DRI conference on drug and medical device defense, Sheldon Bradshaw, chief counsel of the FDA, cited Mr. Beck’s blog as an "excellent" source for information regarding preemption. In January 2008, the blog successfully recieved (sic.) its 100,000 pageview (sic.) ."

(blog)

Official blogs – While we did not find an official Debevoise Twitter account or any official firm blogs, we do know that Debevoise is aware of both tweeting and blogging.

Based on the firm’s Client Update sent out April 15, 2009 (PDF), the firm is taking a proactive step to counsel clients on how to use new technologies responsibly.  Namely, the firm’s update addressed how social media outlets like Twitter and Blogging may affect a company’s disclosure policies.  (+.5)

(In my opinion, if Debevoise truly wants to pose as a social media expert, aware of the risks and benefits, it should perhaps partake in "the use of emerging Internet enabled communications channels as part of their (client) relations strategies.")

(podcast)

Official podcasts – We found one Debevoise partner who participated in a podcast hosted by LexisNexis but no official firm-sponsored podcasts or webinars.

Official webinars – n/a
