ALA Urges Reconsideration of Texas Ethics Rule Prohibiting Titles for Non-Lawyer Management Positions

Lincolnshire, IL (PRWEB) June 16, 2014

The Association of Legal Administrators, an organization representing 9,000 professionals who lead the strategic business operations of law firms and law departments worldwide, has joined with several other legal business associations to call for a reconsideration of a Texas State Bar ethics decision that prohibits the use of certain titles for non-lawyer management positions.

The Ethics Committee’s decision states a Texas firm may not use “officer” or “principal” in job titles for non-lawyer employees of the firm, arguing that doing so gives the impression of non-lawyers exerting control or influence over the work of lawyers, a violation of the rules of professional conduct.

ALA, along with is co-signatories, argued that the Committee’s interpretation does not help to advance the intent of the rules of professional conduct, as roles such as “Chief Technology Officer, or “Chief Executive Officer” do not exercise any control or influence over the manner in which lawyers conduct work on behalf of clients. These roles are designed to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of law firm operations and have little or no interaction with client matters.

The associations argue that the Opinion fails to account for the functional roles assumed by these positions and instead focuses exclusively on the title itself. Firms of all sizes employ Chief Administrative Officers, Chief Financial Officers, Chief Technology Officers, and similar positions. These roles provide vital services to law firms, but do not control or influence the way lawyers conduct their professional activities or convey equity interest in the firm.

The groups also noted that the Opinion is contrary to current trends in law firm management and argued its enforcement will impede law firms from from recruiting and retaining professionals with the skills and experience necessary in today’s legal environment, creating greater risk for both the firms and their clients.

“The decade ahead will be shaped by powerful economic, political, technological, environmental and socio-demographic global forces, which underscores the necessity for new thinking and large-scale change to serve a rapidly changing world,” the letter stated.

The associations signing on to the letter were: Association of Legal Administrators, American Association of Law Libraries, International Legal Technology Association, International Practice Management Association and the Legal Marketing Association.

Johnny Alamo Entertainment Forms Two New Collaborations to Put More Action in Action Sports

Boulder, CO (PRWEB) June 13, 2014

Johnny Alamo Entertainment announced two new collaborations that represent a paradigm shift in sports marketing and audience engagement for brand, content and event alignment.

The first is a collaboration between Mindshare, one of the largest global marketing agencies, led by David Lang, and The Rise of Superman team comprised of New York Times best-selling author, Steven Kotler, award-winning filmmaker, Dirk Collins, and managing director, Johnny Alamo to develop a multi-media platform around “Flow” and ultimate human performance that includes television, film, digital, and live events. The other new collaboration is with the 2015 World Alpine Championships to secure authentic corporate partnerships for the skiing event and its NBC broadcast coverage happening Feb. 2– 15 in Vail and Beaver Creek, Colo.

“I’m honored to be working alongside such talented and passionate professionals to help raise the bar for the future of sports marketing and authentic brand alignment,” said Johnny Alamo. According to Alamo, there is a dynamic shift happening through intelligent collaboration of seasoned professionals who are developing unique and fully integrated content programs for brands to garner genuine audience engagement.

“It’s more than just selling sponsorship, advertising, endorsements, and media rights, Alamo said. “Our society commands a real connection. Brands that understand transparency in media and can apply that to sports marketing, filmmaking, and events with a meaningful communication strategy are going to yield engagement and customer loyalty.”

The Rise of Superman is the prime example of taking an innovative storytelling approach. The Rise team created a cult-like movement as people from athletes to executives to students clamored to learn how to hack into “Flow” and enrich their daily lives. It’s also the story of how two action sports filmmakers – Johnny Alamo and Dirk Collins – partnered with a New York Times best-selling author, Steven Kotler, to unlock the neuroscience of ultimate human performance as well as to decode and then “re-code” how book marketing is traditionally done. Instead of using traditional marketing and PR to launch The Rise of Superman book, the team produced a digital content series that was socialized through key influencers which created a passionate audience and pushed the book to number four on the New York Times Bestseller within four weeks of its debut. Now, they;re collaborating with Mindshare’s, David Lang to create a platform for multi-media programming with a television series and feature documentary film that will incorporate a handful of authentic brand partnerships. This all-star team just announced in Variety that they’re close to inking a TV deal to actualize their original vision.

Organizers of the 2015 World Alpine Championships recently contracted with Johnny Alamo Entertainment to expand their brand development and extend their strategic partnership sales. They’re leveraging Alamo’s extensive network of brands but perhaps more importantly his creative storytelling lens to form authentic brand alignments for this prestigious international event in Vail and Beaver Creek, Colo. that will host 70 countries, 800 athletes and an estimated 750 million global television viewers. 2015 WAC will be the third time the event has ever been held in the United States and aims to be a celebration well beyond ski racing with music, culinary and lifestyle programing Feb. 2-15, 2015.

“I’ve known Johnny for many years and he’s a proven, successful and respected partnership executive in the ski and outdoor lifestyle industry,” said Michael Imhof, Senior Vice President of Sales and Operations for the Vail Valley Foundation and Director of the 2015 World Alpine Championships.

Villaggio Reserve Prepares for Summer Season

Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) June 05, 2014

The South Florida summer is just beginning, and Villaggio Reserve is ready to make this summer unforgettable for all residents. Whether entertaining in a luxurious home, grilling on the private patio or gathering with neighbors poolside at the resort-style Cabana Club clubhouse, Villaggio Reserve is the perfect place to spend the summer season.

“From the spacious residences to the finely appointed Cabana Club, holidays – or any day – spent at Villaggio Reserve will be an ideal time to celebrate and spend time together,” said Ron Yuter, senior vice president of Ansca Homes, developer of Villaggio Reserve, where homes range from the $ 270,000s to the $ 400,000s. “We designed Villaggio Reserve as a community where people can live and celebrate the South Florida lifestyle.”

Whether for the holidays, special occasions or just a gathering of friends, each Villaggio Reserve residence is ideally suited to entertain. Grill beneath the covered patio, then serve up a good time in the dining area, the entertainment room or den – as guests marvel at the coffered ceilings, granite counter tops and Kitchen Craft Cabinetry®. Hosting out of town guests? Residences range from two to three bedrooms.

The Cabana Club, Villaggio Reserve’s 38,000-square-foot clubhouse and town square, promises to be the center of many celebrations. The Grand Ballroom will host a variety of events, whether theater productions and shows or guests’ private affairs.

Enjoy meals from the Café indoors or on the covered and screened lanai. Sit beneath a cabana on the resort-style pool deck. Take a swim in one of three heated pools, or play with the grandkids in the wading pool.

Of course, the Cabana Club will also have a fully equipped and staffed fitness center, with saunas and massage rooms. Care for some outdoor sports? There will be six lighted tennis courts, “pickle ball” or small-court tennis, and bocce ball.
