I was very pleased and honoured to see AvoidAClaim win the 2010 CLawBies award for the Best Law Practice Management blog.

The Canadian law blog or “blawg” scene is vibrant and growing and the CLawBies recognize year’s best Canadian law blogs. You can see a full list of 2010 CLawBies winners and runners-up here.

The post announcing the 2010 CLawBies winners stated the following:

Practice Management Award – Most law practice management advice is “nice-to-have” stuff: how to run your practice more efficiently or market your practice better, and so forth. But some LPM advice is “must-have,” a category that certainly includes how not to be sued by your client or become the victim of fraud. For that reason, this year’s award goes to the Avoid A Claim Blog by Dan Pinnington of LAWPRO. Avoid A Claim not only delivers pragmatic instructions on running a practice well enough to keep the regulators at bay, but it also has begun tracking (with eye-opening illustrations) examples of actual attempted lawyer frauds. Dan’s blog is becoming a must-read in every jurisdiction, not just in Canada.

I was in very nice company with the other blogs in the Practice Management category, including my friend David Bilinsky’s Thoughtful Legal Management, Patrick McKenna’s Rants and Raves, and Samantha Collier’s Social Media For Law Firms.

Thanks to Steve Matthews and the other folks at Stem Legal, and congrats to all the 2010 CLawBies winners.

And while AvoidAClaim didn’t win, it was a 2010 honoree in the Law Biz category of the American Bar Association’s Blawg 100.
