Beyond the Logo: Branding as a Competitive StrategyPDF
Legal Marketing Association Annual Conference
New Orleans, LA
Many law firms think a "brand" consists of a logo, a color palette and maybe a tagline. But to truly differentiate a firm, a brand needs to be lived. Chantal Sheaffer presented at this session that showed LMA attendees how firms are using their brands to create strategic competitive advantages. Sheaffer and her co-presenters, Sally Schmidt of Schmidt Marketing and Paul Darwish of Graydon, examined how an office move provided an opportunity to develop the firm brand and how an internal audit of a client journey resulted in ways the brand could be reinforced by everyone in the firm. The session included ways other firms have created to support the brand at the practice group level.
