Legal Marketing Italia
legal marketing italia is a network for professionals involved in the marketing of law and accounting firms in Italy. It was founded in 2004 by Silvia Hodges with the idea that the individuals working to market legal and accounting services needed a forum to share and exchange ideas with each other.
By providing a networking platform as well as continuing education, legal marketing italia supports its members in their professional development. Since 2004 we have been organising Legal Marketing Luncheons three times a year in Milan, in order to educate, promote and maintain a high standard of professionalism in the industry.
The LPMA exists to help those involved in the legal sector who have responsibility for managing and leading organisations such as Barristers Chambers and Solicitors. They additionally have strong links with the Bar Council and PSMG members can now attend meetings of the LPMA as associate members, receiving the appropriate members discount.
