Industry News

The ABA Journal published a piece on millennials in the legal profession, highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of the largest generational group currently working in law firms. “While most millennial attorneys are still associates, it is only a matter of time before they become the majority of partners,” Michael Moradzadeh of Rimon Law points out.

Caplin & Drysdale: The firm published an overview of the changes coming to Google, Twitter, and Snapchat, outlining new disclosure requirements and advertising regulations. “Late last year, many social media and internet giants announced plans to overhaul their advertising policies for political content,” the article reads. “Entities that actively sponsor election-related advertising should make themselves aware of these new changes.”
