Carving out a niche in your business is a good way to make it stand out from the crowd.Daniel Lawson, an attorney with Meyer Darragh Buckler Bebenek & Eck, seems to have cut to the heart of that principle. He chairs the outdoors pursuits practice group at the firm and has authored a brochure on laws regarding knives for the American Knife & Tool Institute, a national nonprofit organization representing citizens, artisans, distributors and manufacturers of knives.
The brochure, "A Guide to Understanding the Laws of America Regarding Knives," is available on the Internet at www.akti.org/guide.html. According to Meyer Darragh, the brochure helps readers sort through the increasingly complex legal implications of owning and using knives.
"Take a folded pocketknife in your handbag or pocket to a PTA meeting at a local school, and you many find yourself in violation of some well-meaning or badly written law aimed at high school thugs with ice picks," says Lawson. How to reach: Meyer Darragh, (412) 261-6600
