2020 National Law Review Thought Leadership Awards
The National Law Review’s 2020 “Go-To Thought Leader Awards” recognizes 71 legal authors and legal organizations, pulled from 20,000+ of pieces of content published in 2020.
With the exceptional challenges of COVID-19, thought leadership from attorneys and other leading professionals became more important and impactful than ever before. The Coronavirus pandemic and resulting economic and social upheaval along with the uncertain political environment presented unparalleled challenges for both businesses and individuals that made the detailed analysis prepared by the National Law Review’s authors more relevant and sought after than ever, leading to 4.3 million page views in both March and April of 2020, during the first wave of news coverage related to the pandemic.
This is the third year the NLR editors have formally recognized the efforts of less than 1% of the publication’s 15,000 authors across a variety of legal specialties and in law practice management and operations. In 2020 the National Law Review saw thousands of articles on COVID-19’s impact on employer compliance, new legislation such as the Families First Coronavirus
Recovery Act (FFCRA) and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) as well as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and changing state regulations and mandates. National Law Review attorney authors were able to stay top of mind with their clients, by explaining and analyzing these issues, even as face-to-face events and client visits were impossible.
Additionally, with the turmoil related to the impeachment, election, judicial changes, and an uncertain global economy the topics addressed by the National Law Review were broader and more topical than ever.
Authors chosen as NLR Go-To Thought Leadership recipients not only demonstrate impressive legal knowledge and business acumen, but write with an eye towards compliance or adaptation, and along with attracting high numbers of readers they are also frequently referenced in other media and academic journals.
The National Law Review's editors are pleased to recognize the following selected contributors.
