Hosting a LNFB photo campaign is an excellent way to show your firm’s commitment to a more equal legal future, and get lawyers and staff thinking about what it will take to get there. We have created the following sponsorship grid so that firms and organizations of all sizes have an opportunity to participate in this ever growing movement and conversation. 

 
 
  • Your portraits will be posted in our online gallery alongside 1000+ portraits taken since we started.

  • We will share 25% of the portraits on our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) and tag your firm or organization.

  • While we cannot recognize you with the language of as a formal sponsor of LNFB, your gift will be recognized on our “community supporters” page on our website. Please use the language of “community supporter” and not “sponsor” when speaking of your generous contribution made to LNFB.

  • Your firm or organization must also take on the logistical organization of the photo shoot (including hiring a photographer and getting the graphic design completed on the portraits). We will however provide assistance to make sure the font, branding and overall look of the portraits follows LNFB guidelines. To note, your firm’s logo or name cannot appear on the portraits themselves.
