New Firm, New Contributors Contribute to New Look

This morning Ogilvy Renault (my law firm) announced a planned merger with UK-based Norton Rose that will give us fantastic international capabilities, including a new global life sciences focus highlighting our Canadian strength. In addition to being a ground-breaking move for a Canadian firm, it is also exciting for the blog, where reporting has always aimed for an international perspective. Check out the “Shifting IP Constituencies” page or our other industry trends, and you’ll see a wealth of stories emphasizing the global nature of the industry.

So, although the Canadian focus will continue here — in particular with the Monday Biotech Deal Review and the Friday Science Review — we’re bidding the U.S. and Canadian flag logo adieu, and going to a cleaner, more information-packed layout.

A second advantage to the new look is that with a number of contributors active lately, including Jacob Cawker, Mark Curtis and Wayne Schnarr, the author’s name will now appear at the top of each post to give them the full credit they deserve.

More highlights of the new layout include news on the right that’s updated several times a day, plus top posts and trends on the left.
