The Legal Marketing Association’s Southeastern Chapter (LMASE) has recognized Kelley Kronenberg with three first place 2016 Your Honor Awards. These awards showcase the leading designs and creative strategies from firms throughout the Southeastern United States.
The South Florida-based law firm received first place recognition in the categories of Practice Development, Community Relations, and Events. This is the firm’s third consecutive win in the Practice Development category and its second consecutive win for Community Relations.
The LMASE is one of the largest chapters in the international Legal Marketing Association (LMA) organization, with more than 400 members throughout nine states. Nominations for LMASE Your Honor Awards are submitted by firms throughout the Southeastern region. Entries were reviewed and scored by an esteemed panel of legal community judges.
The Your Honor Awards highlight the best ideas, campaigns and strategies, playing a key role as an inspiration for firm marketing efforts. These honors mark Kelley Kronenberg’s 10th award from the LMA, 9 of which are 1st place submissions.
“We’re incredibly proud to have received these awards from the LMASE. Each year, we aim to set a new bar, challenging ourselves to creatively and strategically innovate,” said Thomas Choberka, Chief Marketing and Business Development officer for Kelley Kronenberg. “Traditionally, law firms are quite averse to marketing, but we are fortunate to work with attorneys and firm leadership who are willing to explore new and creative options. The results have paid off, not only in increased growth and business development for the firm, but also in the recognition we’ve earned from our peers in the legal marketing community.”
This award recognizes strategies and programs that demonstrate outstanding positive impact on a firm's brand and overall new business origination. Kelley Kronenberg received first place for its "Data Privacy & Cybersecurity Practice,” a comprehensive strategic plan that linked the firm's expansion and development to growing client needs and legal market opportunities in data privacy and security.
In this category, Kelley Kronenberg received first place for "Ms. Esquire - Empowering Women & Communities," a project with the aim of investing in community service to benefit the local legal community, increase business development and achieve the firm's growth and talent retention goals. The goal of Ms. Esquire is to bring women in the legal profession together and empower them with camaraderie, support, and charity; it is a networking platform for women attorneys to discuss professional challenges, seek advice and grow professionally through business referrals.
The firm also received first place for "Cyber Security & Data Privacy: The Dangers Facing You and Your Business," a seminar offering solutions to these complex issues facing companies in a streamlined format. The central theme of the submission focused on the firm's desire to gather C-level Executives and key decision makers together for a stimulating and streamlined discussion on cybersecurity, risk, and solutions to data breach problems. The goals were to display the firm’s legal expertise in the growing field, cement its status as an industry leader, and use the seminar as a springboard for business development.
