History[edit]

Marius Meland founded Portfolio Media in October 2003, publishing a daily online newsletter covering intellectual property law. In December 2004, Meland connected with Magnus Hoglund, a recent graduate of Columbia Business School, during a chance meeting at a local coffee shop.[7]

In 2006, Meland and Hoglund rebranded their news offerings as Law360.[2] On March 20, 2012, it was announced that LexisNexis had acquired Portfolio Media and Law360. Following the acquisition, Meland and Hoglund serve as co-CEOs of the independent subsidiary. [5]

As of August 2013, Portfolio Media had 11 news bureaus across the United States and 150 employees. [2] Meanwhile, the company continues to expand both in terms of employees [8] and coverage areas.[2]
