NEW YORK, Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The international law firm Chadbourne & Parke LLP announced today the launch of its first blog, TMT Perspectives -- an online resource providing fresh insights, analysis and practical perspectives on the business, legal and policy developments that have the potential to affect large-scale change in the Telecom Media and Technology sectors. The blog can be found at: http://www.tmtperspectives.com
As a forum for discussion and idea exchange between TMT industry experts and practitioners, TMT Perspectives is forward thinking. It will anticipate developments at the intersection of TMT law, business and policy, and explore the cutting-edge issues affecting TMT companies, investors and the wider market.
"Lawyers usually write for other lawyers, which means condensing recent developments in the law," said Dana Frix, chair of Chadbourne's Telecom Media and Technology practice. "That writing is reactive, and is covered broadly by others. In contrast, TMT Perspectives will provide commentary on issues that may not yet have come into clear focus and so may not have been covered elsewhere."
TMT Perspectives will include short news items as well as more in-depth features on topics such as net neutrality regulation, the utility of retrans fees, and factors affecting tech company performance and valuation.
Mr. Frix is the blog's founder and editor. Initial blog contributors will include Aaron Bartell, Christopher Bugel, David Evans, Kyunghoon Lee, Sean McGuinness and James Stenger -- all lawyers who are part of Chadbourne's TMT practice. Outside experts will also contribute.
Mr. Frix continued, "Our posts will anticipate and respond to key industry developments, with analysis and seasoned insight that adds value and perspective. Our TMT practice prides itself on the outcomes we achieve for our clients. We intend to apply to TMT Perspectives the same experience, proficiency, insight, and commitment we've developed in our legal practice. This blog is a natural expansion of our efforts to assist interested TMT watchers to stay ahead of the curve."
