This newsletter's theme of “Teamwork: Inclusion. Collaboration. Growth.,” has been on my mind a lot recently. First, and most obviously, getting my team through the professional and the personal challenges that the pandemic threw at us all.

My current team has been rocking it, like so many of our legal marketing colleagues, but it’s only been virtual. It’s time to think about how we can start being together in person around the proverbial water cooler. While some still are not comfortable expanding their ...

By Nicole Steckman and Aileen Hinsch, senior managers of business development at Crowell & Moring The day-to-day routine of many law firm business development professionals includes a barrage of urgent to-dos – RFPs to write, client alerts to publish, competitive intelligence reports to analyze – the list goes on. If we take a step back and look beyond our immediate daily tasks, we can find opportunities to provide broader, more impactful support to enhance our business development efforts. Just as we coach attorneys to look for opportunities to collaborate with peers outside their practice groups, reaching out to departments beyond our own can offer new ...

By Michael Bond, senior media director for Blattel Communications The pandemic has been marked by times when the public health messaging driving mainstream behavior has been altered, or even reversed in short order. No need to wear masks. You need to wear a mask. You need to wear two masks. You don’t need a mask unless in certain circumstances, provided you are vaccinated. Everyone needs a mask, regardless of vaccination status. These enormously impactful directives have caused people from across the ideological spectrum to grumble, or worse, cease complying. The pandemic has been the crisis of our lifetimes and a messaging challenge like ...

Content provided by LMA Midwest Guest A uthor, Monica Kriegel, Senior Marketing Manager Lead at Armstrong Teasdale Much like the famous couch-moving disaster of a Friends episode, a marketer’s success today depends heavily on their ability to change gears quickly without losing sight of strategic goals.
