Legal Times

American Lawyer Media, commonly referred to as ALM, is an integrated media company located in New York City, and is a leading provider of specialized business news and information, focused primarily on the legal and commercial real estate sectors.[1] ALM owns and publishes 33 national and regional magazines and newspapers, including The American Lawyer, the New York Law Journal, Corporate Counsel, The National Law Journal, The Legal Intelligencer, Legal Times and Real Estate Forum.[2] The company also produces conferences and trade shows for business leaders and the legal profession. Law Journal Press, ALM's professional book imprint, publishes over 130 treatises on a broad range of legal topics.

Other ALM businesses include newsletter publishing, court verdict and settlement reporting, production of professional educational seminars, market research and content distribution.

ALM was formed by U.S. Equity Partners, L.P., a private equity fund sponsored by Wasserstein & Co., L.P.

In 2007, ALM was purchased by Incisive Media for US$630 million.[2] In 2009, Incisive had to restructure the loan used to purchase ALM, and ALM once again became an independent company, owned by the lenders and Apax Partners.[3]
