Readers, check out Eric Sherby’s new blog, Globalit. Eric’s an excellent Israeli lawyer, originally from New York, and I’ve had the pleasure to get to know him a little through our work together on an ABA newsletter. The name of the blog, Globalit, is a nice pun, though one that needs a little explanation in English. If you say the name “Global Lit,” it means, obviously, “Global Litigation,” but if you say, “Globaleet,“then it’s the Hebrew word for “globally.” I know there’s a rule that says a pun its no good if you have to explain it, but given that this is a bilingual pun, I think the rule does not apply, and anyway, as my own blog and Cartas Blogatorias attest, I like wordplay in the title of websites.
Anyway, Eric has gotten off to a great start with posts on the Israeli approach to awards of costs to a prevailing party in cross border cases, a post on third-party beneficiaries of contracts that contain agreements to arbitrate, and posts in Hebrew directed at an Israeli audience.
I’m sure Eric’s new blog is already making waves in Israel, but I’m pleased to be the first or one of the first foreigners to give it a friendly בּרוך הבּא !
