The site is run by James M. Beck, Stephen McConnell, Will Sachse, and David Walk, all of the Dechert LLP firm. Mark Hermann, a founder and contributor, retired from the enterprise in December of 2009, having been there from the very beginning four years ago today.
When we here first began to consider the creation of a law blog, we looked to the Drug and Device Law blog (along with Walter Olson and Ted Frank’s Overlawyered blog) for inspiration and ideas. Since that time, we’ve also carefully considered the advice that Hermann offered in his recent article, “Memoirs of a Blogger,” about the perils of being a lawyer blogger.
After ten months of doing this ourselves, we now know that maintaining a law blog is no small feat. But we must congratulate the authors of Drug and Device Law not just for their endurance, but their ability to provide consistent and thorough analysis of the litigation they cover. If you’re interested in products liability generally – and if you’re reading our site, you probably are – you really should be checking out the Drug and Device Law site each day, as well.
So, without further ado, we wish them a happy fourth birthday.
