About Us

Mission Statement

Big Law Business focuses on the business of law. Through digital and live channels, we feature original editorial content. We report on the significant developments shaping how the largest corporate law departments and their law firms do business, and share perspectives from contributors in the industry. Our national audience is comprised of leaders at in-house law departments, large law firms and legal technology, outsourcing, and consulting companies. Big Law Business serves as a community for discussion, engaging with legal industry leaders, and informing on cutting edge legal market trends. The website also publishes relevant business of law stories from Bloomberg Law, and Bloomberg Media; a comprehensive one-stop shop for all legal business news from Bloomberg properties.

Who We Are

Big Law Business is produced by Bloomberg Next. Josh Block is the Executive Producer and Scott Pierce is the senior commercial leader. Bloomberg Law is responsible for the news that is featured on Big Law Business. Casey Sullivan is the managing editor for Bloomberg Law’s business of law coverage. Eric Wagner leads the Bloomberg Next content team. Philip Ramsey, Cheryl Curtis, and the Fusion team are responsible for website design and development.

Bloomberg Law’s staff correspondents also help provide Big Law Business with coverage and the site publishes relevant business of law stories that appear on Bloomberg News, Bloomberg Businessweek, and Bloomberg Radio and TV; a comprehensive one-stop shop for all news and information about the legal business from Bloomberg properties. Big Law Business also features columnists who offer up their observations about what it means to work in the legal market today and commentary on the most noteworthy trends, events and ideas.

What We Cover

Big Law Business is most interested in the issues that matter to the lawyers and professionals who manage the largest law firms and corporate legal departments. This includes breaking news about large law firm mergers, significant partner moves and leadership changes, law firm bankruptcies, insights into how technology is changing the delivery of legal services, how in-house counsel are approaching their work, and all the ways in which litigation and new regulations are changing the legal business landscape. The site also publishes profiles of prominent in-house counsel and law firm leaders to provide insights into their viewpoints and how they are conducting business.

Ethical Policy

Big Law Business adheres to the ethical standards outlined in The Bloomberg Way:

“We avoid conflicts of interest — actual, potential or perceived — political financial or personal. We are not deceptive, duplicitous or dishonest in reporting and gathering news. We never break the law. We write accurately and fairly without bias or agenda of any kind other than to provide news our readers want. We correct errors promptly and completely. We are often in the difficult position of covering the customers of Bloomberg LP (and Bloomberg Law). We do not allow commercial considerations to shade our news judgment because that would undermine our integrity and reputation.”

Our Community

Big Law Business was launched on March 5, 2015. Our coverage primarily targets lawyers and C-Suite executives at large U.S. law firms and in-house legal departments, as well as consultants and other vendors in the legal industry. Our readership is centered in the United States, with pockets of readers scattered throughout the world: Asia, Europe, Canada, Africa, the Middle East and elsewhere. Our site can be accessed publicly from https://biglawbusiness.com and is featured as a news feed on the Bloomberg Terminal, reaching financial and corporate Bloomberg Professional Service customers. The site can also be found under the black “top hat” at Bloomberg.com under Industry Products.
