Warner Norcross Attorneys Launch New Blogs

Two Warner Norcross attorneys have launched new blogs designed to provide up-to-date information on developments in the areas of energy and labor and employment issues.

The blogs are all housed on the firm's Web site, They join the successful "One Court of Justice blog,", which was launched earlier this year by attorneys John Bursch and Matt Nelson to provide comprehensive, real-time coverage of appellate legal decisions in the state of Michigan.

The new blogs are:

  • Launched by attorney Steve Palazzolo, the blog 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. "I want to start a dialogue on some of the key issues the employers face in today's constantly evolving workplace," Palazzolo said. "Technology is changing, laws are changing – even the definition of work is changing. This blog will be a good way for employers to keep ahead of the curve."

  • Environmental attorney Scott Watson has introduced this blog to both aggregate relevant news and to provide analysis and commentary on issues and developments pertaining to the energy industry, environmental law and economic development incentives. Watson, who concentrates his practice in environmental law, tracks developments in state and federal environmental and energy law, such as the currently pending cap-and-trade legislation, as well as funding opportunities, tax credits and other topics. “So much is currently being written and posted on the topics of alternative energy, climate change and new technologies,” Watson said. "My goal with this blog is to provide a convenient, single source of information for interested readers to turn to stay up to date on legal and policy developments that have the potential to significantly impact the environmental and energy aspects of their businesses."
