Industry Dive launches Legal Dive

Robert Freedmana senior editor, explains why Industry Dive has launched a new newsletter called Legal Dive.

Freedman writes: “There is no shortage of legal news today., Law360 and others keep lawyers up to date on important developments. These publications cover the profession from many angles, including the internal counseling site, so let me share some thoughts on why we think we can add value to space.

‘That lawyer has a job that divides them in two. On the one hand, they need to be up to date on legal developments that may have a significant impact on their organization. We just saw a good example of this when the Supreme Courts of Iowa and Massachusetts earlier this month ruled against restaurant companies trying to get their carriers to pay up under the business termination clause in their insurance coverage. This is the kind of legal news that GCs and chief lawyers have to tell about, and the decisions were widely reported.

“But on the other hand, GCs lead a team that has to work seamlessly in an organization whose goals are not legal; they are product or service focused in the case of a business or mission focused in the case of a non-profit organization. legal team is in this context different from leading lawyers in a law firm and this is where we believe we can help.

“Legal Dive aims to be the business publication for in-house consultants who want to know how to get the most out of their employees, the law firms they work with, and the software they use.”
