Launched in the aftermath of the BP Gulf of Mexico oil spill, Greenberg Glusker’s GREENberg bLAWg was recognized, on the one-year anniversary of the disaster, as a “Top 50 Blog 2011” by the LexisNexis Environmental Law & Climate Change Community for its quality coverage connecting the environment and law. The frequently updated postings, found at EnvironmentalLawyerBlog.com, comment on evolving environmental regulations and provide legal insight into such diverse areas as climate change, clean tech, air quality, water quality, green building, environmental litigation, Brownfields, and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
“Our goal was not to produce another scary law blog. We wanted to speak to a broad audience, including clients and people interested in environmental issues,” said blog Editor-in-Chief and Greenberg Glusker attorney Sedina L. Banks. We are pleased that the blog attracts so many readers, and we are honored by this recognition from LexisNexis.
Comments by blog readers have included “… I am absolutely blown away by the level of understanding you demonstrated on the subject.”
In recognizing GREENberg bLAWg among the highly competitive blogosphere, global content provider LexisNexis wrote, “This is a crisp lively blog from an engaged group of contributors.” Criteria for culling the best environmental blogs included “timely topics, quality writing, frequent posts and that something ‘extra’ that keeps a web audience coming back for more.” Highlights of Greenberg Glusker attorneys’ environmental blog postings in the past year include:

Cranston, chair of the Environmental Law Group. “We look forward to serving as an ongoing resource and thought leader on the dynamic intersection of the environment and law.”
