Levenfeld Pearlstein Captures Legal Marketing Association’s 2016 “Your Honor Award”
April 18, 2016
Firm presented with award at 2016 LMA National Conference for its innovative approach to lateral recruiting
CHICAGO, April 18, 2016 – Levenfeld Pearlstein is pleased to announce that it has been recognized by the Legal Marketing Association with the prestigious “Your Honor Award” for its development of a first-of-its-kind microsite focused on the firm’s lateral recruiting initiative. LP Director of Client Services, Andrea (Crews) Maciejewski, accepted the First Place Award for “Website & Individual Portion” on behalf of the firm at the recent 2016 Legal Marketing Association National Conference in Austin, Texas.
In 2014, LP developed a video-intensive microsite ( http://joinlp.com), designed to give potential lateral hires as complete a picture of life at the firm as possible, enabling them to make more informed decisions regarding their interest in joining.
The idea for the site was born of the belief that as in most modern law firms, lateral recruiting is critical for LP, not just to attract talent, but also to bring in growing books of business. This makes it a task of paramount importance and a key business development strategy. LP also has a very well-defined culture—valuing transparency, accountability, collaboration and entrepreneurial thinking—that doesn’t make it a good fit for everyone; and it happily remains a mid-sized firm, further magnifying the importance of each and every hiring decision. For these reasons and others, LP believed that the microsite could be an important resource for candidates, and serve as a vetting tool for the firm.
“We have always prided ourselves in aggressively pursuing innovative solutions to industry challenges, and this project in particular allowed us to do just that, while authentically communicating our core values to the marketplace,” Maciejewski said. “We are thankful to the Legal Marketing Association for this recognition, and for their constant support of innovation and creativity in the legal marketplace.”
