These are some of the articles, reports, posts, etc. that caught our attention this month. We originally send them out through our twitter account @dg_lawgroup, so follow us to get them as we find them. But many of them are such great resources we don’t want you to miss them, so we’ve decided to put them as a weekly recap. Some have links that will take you to their original sources, whether Mashable, Lexology, New York Times, ArtNews, and/or others. For some others you need to go directly to our Twitter account. Enjoy and let us know some of the stories you’ve found interesting this week. Just share in the comments below. Have a great week!
