Tom Hagy, Editor-in-Chief. Hagy is a leader in niche publishing and product development for the law firm and corporate legal markets. Hagy began his career in 1982 as a legal news journalist. As managing editor, Hagy wrote, edited and launched a series of litigation and legal news reporters covering everything from mass torts to employment to intellectual property. His work included writing and editorial management of Mealey’s Litigation Reports: Insurance, Asbestos, Toxic Torts, Construction Defects, Reinsurance, Insurance Insolvency, Emerging Securities, Emerging Drugs & Devices, and many others (all still published today by LexisNexis). Prior to his time at Mealey’s, Hagy was associate editor at Andrews Publications (now owned by Thompson West), where he contributed to the Asbestos Litigation Reporter and Hazardous Waste Litigation Reporter, as well as reports on mass torts and bankruptcy. As publisher of Mealey Publications Inc., Hagy launched Mealey’s Conferences. In 2000, LexisNexis acquired the business from its founder and Hagy’s mentor, Mike Mealey. While vice president at LexisNexis, Hagy continued to manage Mealey Publications, developed litigation content and lead a team to create the 20 of the LexisNexis Communities featuring free news and commentary, blogs, podcasts, videos and myriad legal resources. Hagy also has served as vice president of the Specialized Information Publishers Association. Hagy formed HB to transform the Mealey’s Conferences business into a multimedia legal education company that offers programs, products and custom services to law firms and in-house counsel, retaining the majority of the former Mealey’s Conferences team. In addition to running HB, Tom drums with a band that sometimes calls itself Johnny Feedback & The Gluttons For Punishment.
