McCollam Leaves Legal Times For Business Week


From ALM’s internal email:

    Folks, Douglas McCollam will be leaving us in a few weeks to join Business Week as the magazine’s D.C.-based legal affairs correspondent. As most of you already know, Douglas returned to the ALM fold in July to serve as Legal Times’s senior editor [for the newer folks on staff: Douglas was previously a staff writer at The American Lawyer and had filled in as an editor at LT]. Since coming aboard, he has done a masterful job of managing legal business and lobbying news for us and has been a superb mentor to our newsroom team. Along with Tom, Douglas did yeoman work steering the ship after Jim’s departure. And, on a personal note, I’ve been extremely grateful to Douglas for his sage advice and good humor during my first weeks here. Though we’ll sorely miss Douglas, we should be very happy for him. This is a tremendous opportunity, and one that Douglas is perfectly suited for. The Business Week position allows him to follow his true passions: writing and reporting. Douglas’s last day is Dec. 28 (time and date of bon voyage toasts TBD), and I’ll be moving quickly to find a replacement. In the meantime, please join me in wishing Douglas well as he embarks on this new endeavor. Thanks, David Brown, Editor, Legal Times
