An innovative approach to an office move has yielded a prestigious award for a Delaware law firm and national public reputation consulting firm. Young Conaway of Wilmington, DE, and Jaffe PR have won the Promotional/Collateral Materials Announcement category of the 2013 Legal Marketing Association (LMA) Your Honor Award for their public awareness campaign about the law firm’s move from a traditional office building to an iconic courthouse in the heart of Wilmington’s historic district.

Young Conaway asked Jaffe PR to make its office move announcement exciting and convey the strategic messages of both superior client legal service and a commitment to Wilmington’s restoration. The campaign did just that by creatively leveraging an assortment of multimedia, from videos, electronic invitations and custom artwork to classic children’s toys, including a retro View-Master viewer and Etch-A-Sketch. Thanks to the campaign, more than 241 legal, business and architectural news outlets covered the move.

The LMA Your Honor Awards recognize law firms, law-related organizations and service providers that set new standards for innovation in finding, developing and retaining profitable legal business. There were more than 200 submissions this year and judges had to be highly selective in deciding from among the many high-caliber entries, according to the LMA.
