Brown Named Legal Times Editor-in-Chief

From an internal announcement by Legal Times Publisher Ann Pelham, obtained by FishbowlDC:

    I’m very pleased to announce that Legal Times has a new editor-in-chief: David Brown.

    For the past two years, David has been the number two editor at The American Lawyer, where he has overseen all facets of the publication and worked closely with Aric Press, ALM’s top editor. While David arrived at the magazine with extensive knowledge about legal journalism, gained while serving as a managing editor at Legal Times in 2004-05, and earlier as an assistant managing editor at The Recorder, these two years at The American Lawyer have given him even deeper experience in our style of coverage. He has also had the opportunity to develop additional skills as an editor and a manager that make him the best qualified person for this challenging position.

    David clearly loves Legal Times and is eager to have the chance to shape editorial coverage, working collaboratively with those already here and hard at work. He is also very focused on the web and the digital future that we must embrace. He is leaving a key role at the magazine to take the helm here, and he brings tremendous energy and tons of ideas. He also understands that the editor is an important partner to the publisher in making our organization a successful, evolving business that responds to our community’s interests and to the marketplace.

Brown replaces Jim Oliphant, who recently headed to the Chicago Tribune.

Oliphant Heading To The Chicago Tribune

FishbowlDC has learned that Legal Times Editor in Chief Jim Oliphant is going to the Chicago Tribune to be the legal affairs correspondent. This is the job vacated by Jan Crawford Greenburg, now of ABC.
