The value of our newspaper as an educational and research tool continues to grow. Corporate counsel wishing to retain outside counsel are increasingly using the Internet to find lawyers with specific skill sets. With that in mind, we have enhanced our Website, www.metrocorpcounsel.com, to make it an easy and effective tool to find out more about the skill sets of the authors from our supporting and patron law firms.
Effective with our May issue, we launched a set of "hot" links with each article whereby you, the reader, can access an author's firm home page or directly click on the biography of the author of the article you are reviewing on our Website. There will also be an e-mail link to the author should you desire direct contact.
Another capability at www. metrocorpcounsel.com is our search tool. You can search for articles by the author's name or the topic of the legal issues for which expertise is needed.
We have also noted that a number of our participating firms are referencing past articles or interviews in our newspaper in their firm bios, and providing "hot" links to the articles or interviews.
Our staff sincerely hopes these Website enhancements allow you to take further advantage of outside counsel research, and make it easier for you to connect with a lawyer who has the required skill sets.
