Please review changes on our Disclaimer.

Thank you very much for reading my blog. This year comes with a lot of changes and challenges for all of us. In the business side, opportunities show and bear risks. For that, I decided to join Holland & Knight´s Mexico City Office. I updated this blog Disclaimer to adjust accordingly. In short, opinions are mine and please do not take the content here as legal advice or assume there is a lawyer-client relationship. Lawyers analize facts, documents and laws to solve legal problems, so clients can be on the safe side of law.

ABA Nominations for Blawgs 100 open through Aug. 8

ABA Nominations for Blawgs 100 open through Aug. 8

Photo credit by: Blog With Authenticity Without Getting Fired by Search Engine People Blog

American Bar Association (ABA) is considering which law blogs will make the 8th Annual Blawg 100. While I cannot submit my own blog www.mexicanlawblog.com , I am allowed to encourage readers and followers to submit my nomination.

Friend-of-the-blawg briefs are due no later than 5 p.m. ET on Friday, Aug. 8, 2014 here http://www.abajournal.com/blawgs/blawg100_submit/

About Blawg 100 Amici

Bloggers, by all means tell your readers about Blawg 100 Amici and invite them to send us messages on behalf of your blog.

But please know that we frown on amici from:

– Bloggers who nominate their own blogs or nominate blogs to which they have previously contributed posts.

– Public relations professionals in the employ of lawyers or law firms who nominate their clients’ blogs.

There is no specific criteria that a blogger can meet to be guaranteed a spot on the Blawg 100. And we think our list would suffer if there were. A blog’s whole can be greater than the sum of its parts, and a blog that never fails to post that daily update, has a beautiful design and an unwavering topical focus can very often have less of an impact than another blog that is less consistent on all fronts.

That said, please keep these criteria in mind when submitting Blawg 100 amici:

– We’re primarily interested in blogs in which the author is recognizable as someone working in a legal field or studying law in the vast majority of his or her posts.

– The blog should offer insights into the practice of law and be of interest to legal professionals or law students.

– The majority of the blog’s content should be unique to the blog and not cross-posted or cut and pasted from other publications. The blog’s content should not be ghostwritten.

– We are not interested in blogs that more or less exist to promote the author’s products and services.

During 2013, Mexico had a small growth, but was an exiting year, as many of long awaited reforms started. Many of them are in process of being implemented, and many have passed in spite of diversity of opinions.

Mexico expects a better growth for 2014, with foreseeable investment in strategic industries like telecom, energy and communications.

With that in mind, below are the most-read posts of this Blog, as numbers have shown. I am also, including the must-read posts, which regardless of the numbers, were highly shared, commented, liked and influenced the most. Make your own conclusions. Share them if you find that appropriate.
