It provides welcome and well informed news in the business legal community, which is hard to come by in other publications. The online version especially provides timely information, enabling me easily to share with others who need to know, by forwarding, tweeting or recommending the articles or interviews that will be of interest to colleagues and friends." ...

"As in-house counsel, I’m on a lot of mailing lists for legal periodicals. I thought you should know that I find your publication the most useful and enjoyable to read. (Y)ou give me a really good understanding of what is current across the board in legal developments, and a good feel for the basics of those topics that are relevant to my practice. I find the article style easy to read...they’re not chopped up into sound-bytes like a newspaper and the writing isn’t cute or dumbed-down like a lot of bar publications. The writing is serious, technical and direct without getting bogged down or overly formal. The topics you cover are pleasantly diverse. (O)f all the many publications I get as in-house counsel, I’m happiest when I see yours drop into my in-box, and yours is the only one that gets consistent attention from me. Keep up the good work. I like that you’re unconventional...but so spot on with substance." … Rob Risley Senior Counsel Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc.
"Kudos from a Twenty Year Reader: I whole heartedly agree with "A New Year's Resolution" (January 2011).

Cuykendall, Former Associate General Counsel of JCPenney and former General Counsel of Star Enterprise (a Saudi Aramco-Texaco joint venture).
"It is the general consensus among the in-house attorneys I know that your publication is the one we read most closely. Its usefulness to me far exceeds any other in-house counsel-focused publication that I receive. My best endorsement? I read every issue cover to cover and so do all the other in-house lawyers I know." ... Lucinda Long, General Counsel, Valley National Bank

Reynolds, Senior Counsel, Law Dept., Texas Instruments, Inc., and past President, NE Chapter ACC

Rosenberg, VP and General Counsel, Hagemeyer North America, Alpharetta, GA
