Boston based law firm Burns & Levinson LLP has proudly launched a new blog, "The In-House Advisor," published by one of the partners, Shepard Davidson. Drawing from many years of practice in business litigation and management-side employment, Mr. Davidson, along with another Partner, designed the blog to provide practical commentary on a variety of legal issues that many business leaders and decision-makers regularly face. The blog will also periodically feature guest posts written by well-respected in-house counsel to provide "in the trenches" viewpoint.

"We are extremely excited to embark on this new endeavor," said Davidson. "We look forward to sharing with in-house counsel, as well as high-level executives, insightful and useful perspectives on issues that often go unnoticed - until it's too late - or can be overwhelming due to ever-changing laws."

With this blog, Mr. Davidson joins his colleague Nancy Van Tine (Divorce Law Monitor).
