Bloomberg BNA’ “Big Law Business” website was named the 2017 Website of the Year by the American Society of Business Publication Editors, the top honor given to a website in the business, trade, and specialty press by the association.
The award was presented Thursday, May 18 in St. Petersburg, Florida ,as part of the association’s Azbee Awards of Excellence competition, recognizing outstanding writing and design in business-to-business magazines, newsletters, and digital media.
Big Law Business focuses on the business of law, featuring original editorial content through digital and live channels. The website reports on significant developments that impact how the largest corporate law departments — and their law firms — do business.
“We are thrilled that ‘Big Law Business,’ which was only a concept less than three years ago, has received such a tremendous honor,” said Mike MacKay, president, Bloomberg BNA Plus, in a statement. “From the beginning, the ‘Big Law Business’ team has focused on delivering insightful original content, while building a network of leading attorneys from business, government and academia, whose contributions provide meaningful perspectives for the industry.”
The Azbee award judging for the Website of the Year category was based on 11 factors including the quality of writing, reporting, and editing; value and usefulness to readers; use of web technologies and graphic design to support and add usefulness to editorial, and depth of information.
