As part of our vast empire known as the “MNBlawg Network,” we highlight new Minnesota-based legal blogs that come to our attention. Not that the ones we pick are new. Rather, we’ve come across them (or you’ve told us about them) and we have added them to our practicelaw blogroll. This week, we highlight two recent additions:
ON Securities. Written by Martin Rosenbaum, a securities lawyer at Minneapolis-based Maslon Edelman Borman & Brand, LLP, ON Securities is dedicated to securities, governance and compensation issues facing public companies. Rosenbaum maintains a loose and informative dialogue with readers on topics that you generally would not associate with loose and easy reading. Rosenbaum even provides securities-related cheat sheets on various issues, which he updates regularly (and promises to keep them at two pages or fewer). The most recent cheat sheet updates readers on the SEC’s proxy disclosure amendments.
RU@Risk? Minnesota Lawyers Mutual Insurance Company maintains a gem of a blog from Todd C. Scott, its vice-president of member services. Todd covers ethics, professional liability and risk management for attorneys. He recently posted about malpractice issues that may arise when business deals go bad (“When the Deal Goes Bad, Everything Looks Like a Conflict“). Other recent posts discuss negligence allegations against an attorney and resulting negative media exposure (“News Flash: W. Virginia Attorney Sued by Client“), and a malpractice suit by a client who alleged she deserved more than a $750,000 settlement (“Regrets? I’ve Had a Few“).
