    Shankleton-big.jpgHello and welcome!

    Whether you’re an Ohio native or one of the many transplants who have found their home in “the heart of it all,” you know that Ohio is truly a Midwestern powerhouse that encompasses diverse and growing communities that have adapted to the changing economy and demographics of the 21st century. Like the Ohio economy overall, the legal community in Ohio has responded to the changing needs of companies through the past several years.

    Legal marketing and business development professionals have had to respond to these changes, and help their firms respond, to remain competitive. At the forefront of these efforts to stay ahead of the curve has been LMA Ohio and its members. At LMA Ohio, we are continuing to reinvent ourselves and look at the value we are providing to our members.

    • Educational programming that covers the latest and greatest happenings in our industry
    • Collaborative efforts with other leading legal organizations, including bar associations, in-house counsel groups and other administrative professional groups serving the legal community
    • Regular communications via our monthly newsletter and social media channels
    • Year-round networking events perfect for relationship-building

    The momentum that LMA Ohio has gained in recent years is sure to continue in 2015, and we invite you to be a part of it. Explore this website, learn more about our organization, participate in our upcoming events and enjoy the full benefit that LMA membership offers.

    Jennifer Shankleton
    2015 LMA Ohio President



    LMA Ohio's fourth annual Legal Practice Development Institute, held Oct. 21, 2014 in Cleveland, was once again a resounding success. The carefully planned agenda included:

    • A managing partner panel focusing on best practices for working with marketing and business development professionals.
    • Tim Corcoran, 2014 LMA international president, who will give a presentation about law firm finance that has been getting rave reviews to standing-room only crowds across the LMA community.
    • Leonardo Inghillleri, former senior vice president of human resources at The Ritz Carlton and nationally recognized client service expert, will share his insights about key client service strategies for law firms
    • A law professor from Cleveland Marshall College of Law and an economist from PNC will discuss the changing dynamics of law firms and the practice-specific nuances that have become even more pronounced since the recent recession
    • Leading diversity experts from Faegre Baker Daniels and K&L Gates will discuss best practices for “walking the walk” in implementing a successful diversity initiative at your firm.
