There’s a new business law blog that looks promising. The Seattle Small Business Lawyer’s Blog, which is only three weeks old, is “designed to facilitate discussion of news, strategy, and legal issues for small business and entrepreneurs,” according to the blog’s editor, Seattle business lawyer Gavin Johnson.

The blog’s so new there’s not much to it yet, but here’s a taste:

The Reading List: Business Law Post

by Brian Rogers on January 17, 2012

in The Reading List

[The Reading List — a regular feature of theContractsGuy — highlights blogs that are interesting enough that I check in regularly. Here’s a link to other Reading List posts.]

Business Law Post is a no-nonsense, accessible blog about business law issues. It’s published by Arina Shulga, a former Cleary Gottlieb associate and current solo practitioner in the Big Apple. Arina is also involved in a start-up that produces apps for children, a fact that I discovered from her excellent guest post Legal Considerations for Mobile App Developers on the Moms with Apps Blog, which of course I read regularly.

The Reading List: New Year’s Edition

A law school student asked me via Twitter recently whether it’s hard to maintain a blog and have a corporate law practice. The answer of course is that it’s very difficult, because there’s not time for nearly everything I want — and need — to do.

Finding time to blog regularly is tough for everyone. For a lawyer who has clients whose needs pretty much always trump a side project like a blog, the difficult often becomes impossible.

The Reading List: China Law Blog

by Brian Rogers on January 4, 2012

in The Reading List

The China Law Blog is a must read for anyone doing business in China and it’s a good read for anyone doing business anywhere. It’s going into its seventh year of publication—that’s a long time in dog years and an eternity in blog years—yet it’s still fresh and interesting.

Dan Harris and Steve Dickinson co-author the blog, which is published by Seattle law firm Harris & Moure, where they both practice.

This description of the blog from its “about” page gives you a good feel for what to expect from the blog and the practical nature of the posts: [click to continue…]

The Reading List: IP Draughts

by Brian Rogers on December 29, 2011

in The Reading List

IP Draughts is hands down the best new contracts blog of 2011. It’s published by Mark Anderson, the principal partner at UK intellectual property firm Anderson Law LLP. Mark writes most of the posts himself, although the project is a team effort and includes an occasional post by others at his firm.

Some might argue that IP Draughts is in fact an IP blog, rather than a contracts blog, but I beg to differ. I’ve collected some of my favorite contracts posts to support my case. [click to continue…]

The Reading List: The Koncise Drafter

by Brian Rogers on January 14, 2011

in The Reading List

The Reading List—a regular feature of theContractsGuy—highlights blogs that are interesting enough that I check in regularly.

Ken Adams, the author of A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting, began publishing The Koncise Drafter in December 2010. The blog is the successor to Adams’s widely-followed AdamsDrafting blog (“same pointy-headed contract stuff, different URL”). Adams moved his on-line forum to The Koncise Drafter when he launched Koncision Contract Automation (the website at least, if not yet the service), which will offer a subscription document-assembly service combining contract templates developed by Koncision with document assembly technology offered by ContractExpress.
