Law firms of all sizes have turned to blogs to showcase their expertise, but at least one New Jersey firm has put the plan on hold out of liability concerns. The reason: Its malpractice carrier said blogging would make the firm uninsurable. The firm's experience may be an aberration, but then again, it could simply mean that most firms don't check with their carrier before launching blogs or that carriers aren't proactive in finding out which of their insureds are bloggers.
Before You Blog, Check With Your Insurance Carrier
