As Super Lawyers Is Sold, Minn. Law & Politics Ceases Publication

This week’s news that Super Lawyers had been sold by Key Professional Media to Thomson Reuters prompted some to wonder what this development might mean for Minnesota Law & Politics.

They didn’t have to wait long for an answer.

The 20-year-old magazine, which gave birth to Super Lawyers but wasn’t included in the sale to Thomson Reuters, is ceasing publication, reports the MinnPost.com. Its article is based on a lengthy note from Minn. Law & Politics publisher Bill White, which the Post provides in full.

“We are thrilled with the acquisition. The transaction is the ultimate validation of Super Lawyers as the leading lawyer rating service in the country. Super Lawyers is a perfect fit for Thomson,” writes White. He will now work on a Thomson advisory board and continue as a Key employee during an unspecified transition period, he says, as he mulls his next venture.
