· Integrate and align digital marketing content and operations – including website, blogs, email marketing and social media platforms (Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube).

· Work closely with attorneys and other firm personnel to prepare RFP responses and create pitch packages for new business.
