NYC Panel on Attorney Social Networking

On Sept. 17 in New York City, I will moderate a panel, Web 3.0 Attorney Social Networking: The Next “Next” in Online Business Development and Client Service, with a stellar line-up of participants. Sponsored by the New York chapter of the Legal Marketing Association, the panel will include:

  • Doug Cornelius, a senior attorney in the Real Estate Group of Goodwin Procter and a member of the firm’s Knowledge Management Department, as well as a frequent speaker and writer on the legal profession’s use of knowledge management, enterprise 2.0, Web 2.0 and social networks.
  • David Johnson, a former partner at Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering and a member of the advisory board of Legal OnRamp, a networking site spearheaded by Cisco System’s General Counsel Mark Chandler that seeks to automate collaboration and content-sharing between in-house and outside counsel. A well-known authority on the intersection of law and technology, David was the chair of what may have been the first networking site for lawyers, American Lawyer Media’s Counsel Connect. He is currently a visiting professor at New York Law School.
  • John Lipsey, vice president of corporate counsel services for LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell. John previously practiced law with a private firm in Washington D.C. He attended the American University, Washington College of Law, where he earned his JD with honors. He is overseeing the launch of Martindale’s new professional networking site, Martindale-Hubbell Connected.

The program is at noon on Sept. 17 at The Harvard Club, 27 West 44th Street in New York.
