Under this new structure, most of ALM’s national news staff will no longer operate under a brand-oriented structure. Instead, reporters and editors will be organized into content teams covering seven topics: large law firms, in-house counsel; national legal news; litigation; intellectual property; international legal news; and legal technology.
ALM said the move will expand its delivery of content and hasten the company’s move to digital media platforms. “Our new organization has been created for a single purpose: to deliver more essential business information and data to our legal clients faster, via whatever platform or media they choose,” Press said in a statement. “It will enable ALM’s editors, journalists, commentators and researchers, the most talented in the industry, to explore new topics, create new products and reach an even broader audience.”
Press was previously editor in chief of The American Lawyer. Robin Sparkman, who had been executive editor of the publication, will succeed him in that role.
