About the Impact Awards:


The Impact Awards honor law firms and/or their strategic technology vendor partners whose innovative use of technology has had a measurable impact on performance, client revenue growth, and retention. Submissions were open to any member of the Legal Marketing Association (LMA) – irrespective of Chapter – at any law firm; or to a legal marketing technology vendor, in association with an LMA member at a law firm. Recognizing that technology can support client growth in several ways, dozens of firms and/or their strategic vendor partners entered to receive awards in three categories:


Marketing and Business Development: Recognizing technology that has helped improve the effectiveness and/or efficiency of marketing and business development activities.


Service and Delivery: Recognizing technology that has helped improve the delivery of legal services and/or boosted overall client satisfaction.


Strategy and Innovation: Recognizing technology that has helped deliver value to clients in entirely new ways.


Each submission was judged along three dimensions: suitability and fit of the technology solution – and other allied organizational changes – to the business challenge or opportunity as presented; the specific organizational steps, e.g., user training, change management, etc., taken to ensure the maximum likelihood of success; and the demonstrated impact of the solution in absolute or relative terms across meaningful and quantified metrics, such as revenue, client acquisition, lower costs, etc.
