One of the things that came out of the social media panel I did with a few of our lawyers in Lisbon (more on that in a later post) was that our firms are all at different stages of development with social media.  I think that’s true for most firms. 

A question that comes up frequently is whether firms have a social media, and how they should start crafting one.  The ILN’s founding firm, Epstein Becker & Green, has drafted a great social media policy that they’ve graciously allowed me to share here.  It’s a good starting point for your own firm’s social media policy, and can also be a tool for tweaking an existing policy.
