Influential Law Firms Have Become Early Adopters of '.law' TLD

Minds + Machines (LSE:MMX), the owner of the new ".law" top-level domain, has announced that two of the world's most influential law firms have become early adopters of .law. Dedicated to lawyers worldwide, and requiring validation of legal credentials, .law entered into a 60-day Sunrise period on July 30, 2015.

DLA Piper, one of the world's largest global business law firms, located in more than 30 countries around the world, and Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, a leading international law firm whose clients include approximately 50 percent of the Fortune 250 industrial and service corporations, are among the law firms to adopt .law domains. Requiring validation of legal credentials upon application and renewal, the .law domain will provide the legal profession with a trusted and memorable URL to stand out from overcrowded and unvetted domains.

Lou Andreozzi, CEO of .law, said, "We are delighted to welcome Skadden and DLA Piper, two of the world's most respected law firms and ranked among the top four by the AmLaw100, to the .law domain community. A .law domain name offers practicing lawyers, from the solo practitioner to the litigation boutique to the large international law firm, a rare opportunity to enhance their presence across the Internet and, because of the strict criteria for the .law top-level domain, let the public know they are dealing with real lawyers."

Stuart D. Levi, co-head of Skadden's Intellectual Property and Technology Group, said, "Securing a .law domain name will ensure our presence across new top-level domains as they are made available to the legal community."

Tom Goldstein, partner at Russell & Goldstein, P.C., one of the preeminent Supreme Court litigation boutiques, and co-founder of SCOTUSblog, said, "We're pleased to be an early adopter of the .law domain, which is a sure-fire, trusted way to signal to clients and colleagues the legal resources we provide."

The 60-day Sunrise period for .law, where trademark owners can register their names in .law, began on July 30, 2015. Names in the .law domain will first be available for sale to credentialed legal practitioners beginning October 12, 2015. More information on the .law launch program is available at http://nic.law.
