Doug Isenberg's GigaLaw blog has earned a permanent place in The Expert Institute's Best Legal Blog Hall of Fame, winning second place in the "legal tech" category in 2017.

This is the third consecutive year in which the GigaLaw blog placed in the Best Legal Blog competition. In 2016, the GigaLaw blog won first place in the "legal tech" category.

The GigaLaw blog provides news and analysis about important Internet legal issues, with a focus on domain name disputes, an area of law in which Doug has practiced for more than two decades. Doug is also a panelist with four of the leading domain name dispute providers, including WIPO and the Forum.

The GigaLaw blog, which was redesigned and relaunched earlier this year, frequently covers issues related to the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) and the Uniform Rapid Suspension System (URS).

The GigaLaw Firm Recognized by 'Best Law Firms'

U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers have announced the “Best Law Firms” rankings for 2018, which again includes The GigaLaw Firm.

"Firms included in the 2018 'Best Law Firms' list are recognized for professional excellence with persistently impressive ratings from clients and peers," the publications said. "Achieving a tiered ranking signals a unique combination of quality law practice and breadth of legal expertise."

The GigaLaw Firm has been included in the “Best Law Firms” rankings for its work in the area of technology law.

"Ranked firms, presented in tiers, are listed on a national and/or metropolitan scale," according to U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers. "Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and the same practice areas for its abilities, its professionalism, and its integrity."

The GigaLaw Firm's tiered rankings for technology law included designations both nationally and in metropolitan Atlanta.
