The Odometer Rolls Over: Knowledge Mosaic Law Firm Memos Archive Reaches 100,000
This morning, we at Knowledge Mosaic reached a milestone by posting the 100,000th memo in our Law Firm Memos database.
From a certain perspective, events of this kind are not in themselves meaningful – after all, we have only a handful more memos than we had yesterday evening. Yet they symbolize something very real. In this case, they put an exclamation point on the fact that our “virtual law firm,” which features memos from 200 of the top North American law firms spanning 46 practice areas, may very well be the most extensive single source anywhere on the planet for expert legal commentary and guidance.
And what was the lucky publication that put us over the hump? A 25-page client alert from our good friends at Latham & Watkins, entitled “The Good, The Bad, and the Offer: Law, Lore, and FAQs.” The alert describes itself as “a comprehensive summary of the law and lore relating to offers of securities and a guide to maneuvering safely through the maze of available safe harbors and industry customs.” Lots of impressive flow charts in there.
Here are some facts on this memo:
- It’s our 12,681st memo in the Securities practice area
- It’s our 758th memo from Latham & Watkins.
- It’s our 14th memo whose title alludes to Sergio Leone’s classic 1966 Western, starring a young Clint Eastwood.
