[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.

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!!!)

We found these by searching Google for “DLA Piper podcasts.”  You could also search for “podcast” on DLA Piper’s website.

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!)
