Grand Rapids Law Firm Expands Presence in Blogosphere

A fourth practice area in the Grand Rapids law firm of Warner Norcross & Judd LLP has launched a blog.

The Privacy and Information Security Team has developed a privacy blog to keep clients and other readers informed about security breaches, consumer profiling, HIPAA, identity theft, cloud computing and other new developments in the world of privacy. The blog,, can be found on the firm’s web site and is accessible from its home page.

Norbert Kugele, a partner who concentrates his practice on information security and privacy issues, along with associate Marcus Jones and other attorneys will contribute to the blog.

The new privacy bloggers join three other groups at the firm who are writing about energy, appellate law and labor and employment issues. These include:

  • "One Court of Justice" blog, found at, that offers insights, updates and news on the Michigan Supreme Court and the Michigan Court of Appeals. John Bursch, chair of the Appellate Practice Group, and other attorneys in the group regularly contribute comprehensive, real-time coverage of legal decisions in Michigan to this popular site.

  • A labor blog by Steve Palazzolo, found at, takes an edgy and often humorous look at labor and employment law issues. Palazzolo, who is a regular media resource on labor subjects, covers key employment cases, hot labor topics such as furloughs, technology and its impact on the office, proposed legislation, common mistakes employers make and other issues.
