The Next Big Thing Initiative

Next Big Thing

Each year, LMA International and subject matter experts team together to identify the "next big thing" in legal marketing and how it will influence your role as a legal marketer

The culture and structure of law firms have historically made institutional changes in service difficult to achieve. However, a shift is taking place that focuses on service through critical conversations. The 2019 Next Big Thing, Service Metamorphosis, identifies how service can make a strategic difference in a collaborative relationship, and how it can be used as a competitive differentiator.
