If you are interested in sponsoring an event (i.e., table sponsorship, community sponsorship or substantive event), your first step is to request funding via the Sponsorship Portal.  Based on pre-determined guidelines, local office managing partners and chairpersons of the firm’s administrative practice groups are responsible for evaluating and approving most of the sponsorships, events and solicitation expenditures.

 

Once funding is approved, all office and practice group events must be coordinated through the Marketing Department.  We help with providing the firm logo, tables with a branded skirt, banners, presentation materials, ad copy, promotion material and promotional items (such as pens and notebooks). Some items need to be purchased (such as golf balls) and may need to be ordered.

The Sponsorship portal:

The place to get your activity funded

Please note, Marketing requires enough notice to provide materials, especially if items need to be ordered.

At times, attorneys choose to sponsor their children’s activities such as sports teams. In these instances, the attorney is responsible for funding, and we can provide the approved logo/graphics.

 

Practice group activities

These items are generally substantive in nature and serve to educate, create networking opportunities or raise the collective profile of the practice with clients and prospects.

 

Sponsored Event

Includes sponsorship of substantive meetings or third-party events. Examples include the DRI Drug & Medical Device Conference, WV Chamber HR Conference, Energy & Mineral Law Foundation Annual Institute and Kentucky Bankers Association Annual Meeting.

 

Participant Event

Includes all educational or marketing events in which Dinsmore has partnered with a referral source or outside organization to host an event either on-site or in an off-site location. Examples include the Dinsmore/Ernst & Young co-hosted seminar, Stock Yards Bank cocktail reception and Dinsmore/First Financial Bank webinar.

 

Local office activities

Local activities are generally focused on creating networking opportunities or raising the collective profile of the firm in the legal and/or business community.

 

Responsibility to the legal community

Examples include bar association events and legal aid activities.

 

Responsibility to the business community

Examples include support of activities such as local chambers of commerce and important community/charitable organizational events.

 

Responsibility to clients

Examples include client mixers, open houses and receptions, as well as requests for support from significant, current or potential clients who demonstrate interest in establishing a relationship with Dinsmore.

Sponsorship benefits often include an advertisement to facilitate the promotion of the firm in the event program, directory or promotional materials. Marketing can provide the graphic/layout for the ad and can help to tailor the message to a specific industry or target audience.

 

Be advised that the firm does not typically budget for paid brand advertising.
