Douglas J. Wood
Senior Counsel, Reed Smith LLP

Wood is an entertainment and media lawyer with a global law firm, representing marketers, producers, studios and performers. He is also a published novelist, and his latest book “Blood on the Bayou,” was released this month.
 
Technology is critical to performing legal services, Wood said. This includes online meetings with clients and colleagues as well as research, blogging and other outreach.
 
“As a novelist, technology offers a research platform to support the subject matters and plots of my books,” he said.
 
Newspapers he reads include StarNews, The New Yorker, The Economist, Cigar Aficionado, New York Post, The New York Times, The Journal and ABA Journal.
 
Favorite websites include Only In Your State – North Carolina. “As a new resident (arrived in mid- 2020), it offers an informative and fascinating history of the state and places to visit.” Other websites include This Week in Space Review and Atlas Obscura, for info on unusual travel options.
 
Favorite podcasts include The Way I Heard It, HISTORY This Week and Mobituaries with Mo Rocca.
 
As a mystery junkie, Wood enjoys watching crime dramas and mysteries including Bosch, Happy Valley, Fargo and Ozark, as well as CBS News Sunday Morning.
 
Favorite books include fiction by Tom Clancy, John Grisham, Robert Ludlum and James Patterson.
