ATLANTA, GA (May 8, 2007) — Trust the Leaders, the quarterly law magazine produced by Smith, Gambrell & Russell, LLP, has been honored with the 2007 Gold Gamma award for best custom publication.
The Magazine Association of the Southeast (MAGS) bestows the Gamma awards each year on publications that demonstrate excellence in content and design, a keen understanding of core audiences, and success in delivering on intended goals. The award in the custom publishing category goes to a magazine that delivers valuable and persuasive editorial content from a sponsoring company to its target audience.
“I am personally gratified by how many clients have told me that they read each issue of our magazine from cover to cover,” said Trust the Leaders editor-in-chief Dana Richens, a partner in the corporate litigation section of Smith, Gambrell & Russell. “Hopefully, that means we’re doing something right!”
Trust the Leaders is written by top legal experts in SGR’s numerous legal practice areas. The corporate law firm distributes the magazine to its clients as an educational resource to keep corporate executives updated on current legal topics and trends. The magazine is published by Atlanta Magazine Custom Publishing.
