Boston lawyer David A. Barrett, who claims to have the “world’s largest LinkedIn lawyer network,” has launched a blog, The LinkedIn Lawyer, devoted to answering other lawyers’ questions about the professional-networking site. In a recent post, he explains his claim to the world’s largest lawyer network:

“‘The World’s Largest LinkedIn Lawyer Network’ refers to how many lawyers are in my personal, directly connected network which currently consists of 3400+ members and 1450+ lawyers.”

Barrett says that he believes the most-connected lawyer on LinkedIn is Los Angeles lawyer Martin S. Rudoy. Somehow reminds me of that old saw, “He who dies with the most toys wins.”
