Well, here we are at the end of another year. I hope all of you are having a wonderful holiday season. As usual, I like to take a few minutes every December to reflect back on the year and take stock of where we are with the “Ten Things” blog.

Sometimes you just have to reward the wonderfulness of sticking around (right, Boomer?)! So, with no further ado, this edition of “Ten Things” sets out my 2021 list of best blogs (and other media) for in-house counsel:
