Catchin' up with some posting on a lazy fourth of July, after a wonderful mini-vacation (finally had a chance to see James Taylor at Tanglewood! Awesome!)
It occurred to me that I hadn't had a chance to post a link to our June Law Technology News cover story, "Unleashed," about the explosion of remote working in mainstream revamped legal operations. In that package, I profiled American Express' corporate counsel operations, what Thomson Reuters' London shop is doing with the upcoming Olympics, and how a Minneapolis-based regional EDD shop, NightOwl Document Management Services, is leveraging mobile technology to go national. (There are also several short profiles of LexisNexis' Seattle outpost, Kraft Kennedy, Goldberg Segalla, TRU Staffing Partners, and advice on how to create successful programs.)
The NightOwl segment focuses heavily on a former denizen of this blog, Albert Barsocchini — who has been a long-time LTN board member and frequent contributor for this blog — but following LTN's "Tom O'Connor Rule," is off both because he, like Tom, currently works for a vendor. In the story, Al talks about his new job as senior director, strategic consulting, and how he can work for NightOwl while based in San Francisco, and offers some great tips for others considering such arrangements.
You can hear more from Al (left) on our LTN videos, here: Part 1 and Part 2.
And on the June edition, "Remote Working Options for Lawyers," of my Law Technology Now podcast, here, along with LexisNexis' ahttp://www.linkedin.com/pub/marc-osborn/3/958/66, senior director, communications, for its legal and professional unit.
I hope you and your friends and family had a wonderful holiday today; enjoy the de rigeur fireworks tonight!
