I’m thrilled to announce that JD Supra has included me in this year’s Readers Choice Awards, which acknowledge top authors and firms for their thought leadership in key topics. I was selected from among thousands of authors published in 2018 for the level of visibility and engagement attained with readers on the topic of marketing and business development.

We also have two ILN member recognized – Patricia Wagner and E. John Steren of Epstein Becker & Green were recognized as top authors in Antitrust & Trade Regulation.

You may remember that we had Lance Godard contribute a guest post a few years ago on three reasons why every lawyer should study the JD Supra awards, and these are just as relevant today, so I encourage you to check these out. To recap:

  1. Clients read what they need to know
  2. Content marketing works
  3. Less is definitely not more

Read more to find out why the awards are relevant to you, even if you haven’t participated or been recognized, and how you can make use of them in your practice. 

JD Supra’s Readers Choice Awards

The Readers’ Choice Awards recognize top authors and firms who were read by C-suite executives, in-house counsel, media, and other professionals across the JD Supra platform during 2018.

This year, the awards recognize:
authors for their visibility and thought leadership covering 26 key, cross-industry topics (10 authors per category)
firms for their visibility and engagement in the 26 topics covered by the awards (one firm per category).

Methodology – As the name of suggests, the Readers’ Choice Awards reflect a deep dive into JD Supra’s 2018 reader data, in which they studied total visibility and engagement among readers across many industries interested in certain defining topics of the day.

JD Supra editors chose the 26 main topics covered in this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards for their timeliness as well as their proven, ongoing importance. In each category, they recognize ten authors and one firm for consistently highest readership and engagement within that category for all of 2018. In total, across all categories, they recognized the excellence and achievement of 228 authors selected from over 50,000 who publish their excellent work on their platform.

Along with a top firm in each category, they also feature additional reader data, including the top five most-read articles, popular related topics, total number of authors, and other category-specific information.

Year to year, Readers’ Choice Award categories may change or be expanded to include additional industries or topics.
