ABOUT US

Fishman Marketing is your one-stop solution for strategy, marketing, branding, and leading-edge websites. Founded 20 years ago by Ross Fishman, a former litigator, marketing director, and marketing partner, we have grown to become a global leader in professional-services marketing.

Agencies often look the same from the outside.  But the true test is the tangible, measurable results achieved for their clients. Marketing is a tool, which can be used to achieve a specific goal – market leadership; growth in size, revenue, or profits; enhanced recruiting; or other strategic objective.  Many say “You can’t measure marketing.” At Fishman Marketing, we say you can, and should.

We believe our team is the best in the business, built from the ground up to represent dynamic, small and mid-sized law and professional-services firms, worldwide.  We don’t chase the AmLaw 100, we believe we are the best solution for entrepreneurial middle-market firms that want to take their firm to the next level in reputation and revenue.

Our fully integrated team offers experts in the full range of marketing skills this dynamic market requires. Strategists, copywriters, designers, editors, web designers and developers — each with at least 15 years’ experience in professional-services marketing. Most have significant B2B and consumer-marketing expertise as well.

That’s our team, we’re confident that they match up head-to-head with the best agencies in the business. We would appreciate the opportunity to help you achieve your goals.

AWARDS

We always learned that it’s not about the trophies, it’s what they stand for. There are dozens of marketing competitions in all industries honoring a wide range of achievements. Frankly, we don’t see why agencies enter so many of them. We don’t need trophies for being creative or clever.

We like being judged against our competition head-to-head on one issue – Effectiveness. We enter the competitions where a primary consideration is “Did the marketing effort achieve the firm’s objectives and generate sizable and measurable revenue?” We like winning those because it’s the client who really wins. Not only do they get to put the trophy in their lobby, they’re already in a significantly better financial position as a result of the honored activity.

For that, we’re happy to brag about our clients and our work. Fishman Marketing has received dozens of international marketing awards, including winning at least one Legal Marketing Association first-place trophy for 17 straight years.

In fact, not only have we received five of the LMA’s grand prize “Best in Show” honors ever awarded, it was actually created for Fishman Marketing. The LMA judges tell the story that they conceived a single grand-prize honor because otherwise we’d have won nearly every single individual category. We’ve also received many awards from ALA, the ABA, and others, including one of just ten Inc. magazine “Marketing Masters” award ever bestowed, for a “brilliant and successful” marketing campaign.
