A Look Back at 2020 Through the Lens of Our Legal Blog

by Matt Chandler
Thu, Dec 31st 2020

As the year comes to a close, it feels fitting to use this space to reflect back on the most read legal blogs our attorneys wrote in 2020. The topics varied widely, the authors differed, but each resonated with our readers. These five blogs led the way in views, shares and social media traffic. If you missed them the first time around, enjoy. And, if you recognize one you read in its first run, pass it along to share with others who might benefit.

Thank you to our clients, social media followers, and everyone who has been a part of our firm’s success in 2020. We look forward to continuing to help business owners, individuals and families with their legal needs in the New Year and beyond.

#1 The Bills Mafia!

No surprise here, our most read blog of 2020 involved our hometown Buffalo Bills. Attorney Les Greenbaum has been focused on intellectual property law for decades, and his insights into the attempt by the Buffalo Bills the trademark “Bills Mafia” as a means to sell merchandise was well-received. Les did a deep dive into the history of the Bills Mafia movement, including a competing trademark application. The result was our most popular blog of 2020.
